We also have unparalleled experience and resources on the ground for representing clients before the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and visa-issuing U.S. Consulates in China (Beijing, Guangzhou, Shanghai, Chengdu, and Shenyang). We make it our business to know each consulate’s policies, practices, and procedures. One of our strengths is advising individuals about their options after a visa denial.

We also are familiar with Chinese laws and practices related to finance, corporate law, public security, and tax that may bear upon U.S. immigration cases.

China Immigration Law

China’s rapid growth, shifting demographics, and aging population have created a new dynamic of immigration to China. The government began to overhaul its immigration bureaucracy in 2012 by enacting a new Exit-Entry Administration Law. Yet administrative responsibilities remain scattered across multiple ministries, including public security, foreign affairs, human resources and social security, commerce, education, and others. And many immigration functions lack transparency.
