Effective Nov 12, 2014 Chinese Consulates across the US start new policy to issue visas up to 10 years for US passport holder. Only M, L, Q2, S2 visa can be issued up to 10 years. F visa however will still be issued up to 1 year. We will request 10 years visa for our clients whenever possible. It is up to the Chinese Consulate to make final decision. VisaRite should not be liable, if Chinese Consulate grants you a visa shorter than you desire.
