A Message from the Department of State Regarding Recent Technical Problems with the Visa System: 

We have made significant progress and issued most of the delayed visas worldwide. We are working to bring our systems back to full operational capacity. We continue to prioritize immigrant visas, adoption cases, and emergency nonimmigrant visa cases. We are printing visas for these cases and all cases with very few delays. Please check with the embassy or consulate where you will apply for additional information. Please see our FAQs for further information.

CITIC is the only bank authorized to accept application fees for U.S. visas in the People’s Republic of China, and their branches are the only locations authorized by the U.S. Embassy to receive and return passports as part of an application for a U.S. visa.  The U.S. Embassy has not entered into any agreement with other banks, travel agencies, and service providers for visa information and/or consultation services.
