Please be advised that all routine visa services at U.S. Embassies/Consulates in China, with few exceptions, have been cancelled due to the surge in COVID 19 infections across China. We recommend that you carefully consider any travel plans you have to China at this time and do not travel if you require a new visa to return to the U.S. to resume study.

As a reminder, Spring 2023 classes begin January 24. All F-1 and J-1 international students are expected to be on campus by that date to resume studies. You can download the latest ISS Support Letter for Visa Acquisition & Travel.
