U.S. Citizen Services
The American Citizen Services (ACS) Unit of the U.S. Consulate General in Chengdu assists American citizens in China. The Consulate considers the provision of services to American citizens one of its most important missions in China. The unit provides passport services, birth registrations, information on tax and voting, advice and information to Americans visiting and residing in China, and guidance to Americans whose family members or friends have U.S. visa questions.
The Consulate recommends that every American residing in the Chengdu Consular District for an extended period register with the Consular Section. Registration will enable us to send you important security updates, or to locate you in case of emergency or evacuation. All personal information will be kept entirely confidential. Registration is quick and easy. Please register online or ask a Consular officer about registration at one of our Lhasa American Citizen Services outreach events.
The ACS Unit conducts periodic American Citizen Service Outreach trips to cities throughout China. Information regarding scheduled American Citizen Service Outreach Trips to Lhasa will be posted on this website. Please remember that many of these services require you to sign up in advance of our trip.
