about to mail P3 (split topic)

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We are about to mail our P3. Do we just mail back the confirmation letter or we have to attach the receipt? Do we have to use EMS service? And also, we have not paid the fee yet. Where do we pay the fee? Do we pay the fee after we receive P4? Please help. Thanks

You need to follow the instructions on the letter. Here is a forum with examples of what the letters look like (https://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/705377-is-there-anywhere-where-i-can-preview-what-the-contents-of-the-k1-noa2-packet-3-and-packet-4-actually-look-like).

 

As noted on the P3 you must return the following:

  • P3 letter that was sent
  • DS-160 confirmation page
  • Copy of the personal information page on your passport
  • 2 Visa photos (2 inches square or 50 mm square)

To complete the DS-160 go to (https://ceac.state.gov/GenNIV/Default.aspx)

 

When you have everything completed mail back to the consulate using the CITIC Bank courier service (http://www.ustraveldocs.com/cn/20170817 IV Pre-interview Document Submission Cover Letter for Drop Off.pdf). Do not mail through EMS. I called the customer service line and they said that all documents should be delivered through CITIC Bank.

 

Once you have completed your DS-160, you must pay your DS-160 fee before sending back the P3. The employees at CITIC Bank requested the receipt of fees paid before sending the documents. Here are the instructions to pay the fees (http://ustraveldocs.com/cn/cn-niv-paymentinfo.asp#instructions). I find it easiest to use the AliPay option, but you can also pay with a Chinese Debit Card through the online portal or at CITIC Bank. 

 

Lastly, here is another link to the US Travel Docs website that has links to various forms and instructions (http://www.ustraveldocs.com/cn/cn-iv-preparedocuments.asp). It is very useful and I recommend you search through that site for the various documents/instructions that you need.

 

Hope this helps!

Excellent advice. Sometimes deviating from the prescribed procedure can result in avoidable delays at the least or denial at the worst. Why risk it at this level in your visa process?;)

This should be the top sticky in the China forum, not the useless, out of date 'where to stay in GZ' ####### they have stickied now.

 

Thanks for the write up!
