Chinese visa requirements for child adopted from China but American citizen
(New Jersey USA)
Question: Hi. We will travel for vacation to China. My daughter was born in China, she is adopted and is an American citizen with a US passport. Do I need to submit her original Chinese passport along with her American Passport with the visa application? Many thanks!
If your US passport says, you are born in Taiwan, China, Hong Kong:
a) You must provide them with old passport OR
b) Previous Chinese visa
No exceptions to this rule.
The consulate will cancel your daughter's Chinese passport and Chinese citizenship and then issue the Chinese visa
into her US passport. In the future, if she needs to re-apply, she will need to show only the previously-issued China visa. You need the old Chinese passport only for the 1st China visa in a US passport.
