In observation of China’s National Day, government offices will close during October 1-7. Processing for visas, permits and other immigration services will be delayed as government offices in China and Chinese consulates abroad will be closed during that time. Delays and backlogs should be expected when offices reopen thus it may be beneficial to adjust timelines and start dates for immigration needs.

National Day celebrates the founding of the People’s Republic of China on October 1, 1949 and marks the beginning of a seven-day Golden-Week celebration across China.
