Message from the Consul General


Welcome to the official website of the Consulate General of the People's Republic of China in Houston.

Officially opened in 1979, this is the very first Consulate General China set up in the United States of America after our two countries established diplomatic relations. Our consular district covers eight southern U.S. states, namely Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Florida and an unincorporated territory-the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. Our consular district is an area of rich cultural heritage and promising economic development.

I'm honored to serve as the 13th Consul General here at this significant period of time when our two countries are jointly building a new model of major country relations. My colleagues and I are committed to work closely together with all friends in our consular district to further strengthen an all-round exchanges and cooperation between China and the southern U.S., and to deepen mutual understanding and friendship between our two peoples. Meanwhile, we will spare no efforts in protecting the legal rights of Chinese nationals here and in providing efficient consular services to those in need.

We welcome everybody to visit China for business, tourism or studying. In an effort to provide the most up-to-date information, we will, through this website, share with you the most recent achievements of China's development, the latest progress of China-U.S. cooperation, and the dynamics of the all-round exchanges and cooperation between China and our consular district. We will also provide timely information on visa affairs and consular protection.

Thanks for visiting this website. We look forward to your valuable views and comments.
