|Subject: Re: China Visa|
I obtained a visa 4 years ago in San Francisco for a visit to China. Either you mail the passport and application to the consulate or personally take it to them. The hold your passport for 5 days. The $50 visa fee needs to be paid in either cash or money order. I hope this helps. I've never been to Shanghi. I can't wait to hear about your trip.
