Adoption and Personal Document Services

Feeling a little overwhelmed by the strict regulations required to submit Chinese or Guatemalan personal or adoption documents for consulate authentication? We can help! We specialize in adoption dossier and personal document courier services at Houston Consulate.

The inspiration for My China Docs came about through the adoption processes of our own daughters, and we are looking forward to helping you with part of your own adoption journey.

Corporate Document Services

Preparing corporate, legal, or business documents for authentication can be complex. The Consulate changes the requirements frequently and the process itself can be difficult to understand. My China Docs works closely with each corporate, business, and legal client to prepare their documents correctly so that the consulate staff can approve them without delay.

Our corporate and legal document authentication services include but are not limited to:

  • Certificates of Formation
  • Company Bank Letters
  • Articles of Incorporation
  • Trail Exhibits
  • Sales and transfers of business
  • Translated Documents
  • Business Licenses

China Visa Services

Whether it is for tourism or for business use, the process to obtain a China visa is not an easy one. There are six different Chinese Consulates in the United States, and each requires their own variations on the visa application. My China Docs will provide you with the correct forms to submit to the Houston Consulate and ensure you are submitting the right information the first time.
