Our team waits in line so you don't have to. Travelers can walk into the new SPS office just down the hall from the Chinese Consulate and walk back out -- application process completed -- in well under half an hour.

Swift Passport Services (SPS), the leading provider of Chinese visa services in Chicago, is proud to announce that the company is moving to a new strategic location within the 1 East Erie Building in River North/Gold Coast on June 1st. SPS will be located on the fifth floor of the building, just down the hall from the Chicago Chinese Consulate. The new location will make it easier than ever for walk-in clientele to obtain China business visas and tourist visas.

Travelers who go directly to the Chinese Consulate in Chicago to apply for a China tourist visa or other travel visas are often forced to wait in lines for up to three hours. Once the visa is issued several days later, it can take another hour of waiting at the Chicago China Consulate just to pick it up. Unfortunately, many people who need to apply for visas to China have to take a day off from work or drive from out of state in order to complete the process, which can be a hassle and a waste of valuable time.

Laurie Lee, Owner of SPS commented, "At the end of the day, I think the person who pays $25 to park and takes a day off work to sit for hours at the Consulate pays three to four times more than the person who uses our service. We all place value on our time. At SPS, our goal is to expedite the China visa application process so people can save time and money as we keep our rates affordable."

The China Consulate, Chicago, is a well-run facility that does its best to handle frequent requests for travel visas. However, the sheer volume of people applying to visit China means that the Consulate constantly has lines out of the door. Swift Passport Services helps travelers get around the hassle of waiting in line at the Chinese Consulate, Chicago. Through SPS, travelers can bypass the Consulate lines by filling out their paperwork and taking a visa photo at the SPS office. Swift Passport Services has a number of China visa experts on hand who can answer travelers’ questions, help ensure that applications are filled out correctly, and submit completed applications on behalf of clients. The whole process takes between ten to twenty minutes versus three hours and two separate visits to the Consulate when you do it yourself.

The Chinese Consulate only accepts visa applications that are submitted in person by the traveler or by a proxy for the traveler. Rob Lee, co-owner of Swift Passport Services, said, “Our team waits in line so you don't have to. Travelers can walk into the new SPS office just down the hall from the Chinese Consulate and walk back out -- application process completed -- in well under half an hour.” Once visas are issued, SPS will FedEx the passport and visa back to client, saving the person additional trips to the Consulate.

SPS has been working with the Chicago Chinese Consulate since 2007. The company has an excellent track record of helping travelers obtain their visas, and they make a complicated and timely process safe and trouble-free. The SPS visa application service fee starts at $55, a small price to pay for saved time and energy.
