We are traveling from Miami to China and needed to use a visa agency since Texas had the nearest Chinese consulate. My boyfriend and I extensively research everything for our trips and
after our usual due diligence decided to go with BCV Visa for 4 reasons: 1) They had by far the most affordable price of any agency we saw online (eg. they let you include a prepaid
envelope for joint mail back which was a big savings), 2) Their responsiveness to our initial email and phone inquiries about the costs/length of time etc., 3) Their location (google maps
showed they are located less than 2 miles from the Chinese consulate that issues the actual visas) and finally 4) They had good reviews by other users online.
Needless to say they lived up to their good reputation. They confirmed their receipt of our package on Monday 7/20 and by 7/21 they confirmed it was submitted to the consulate. By Tues
7/28 they promptly mailed it back and sent us communication to confirm tracking, etc. The visas and passports were as promised and we even got a nice note in the package, Thanks Lisa!
Word of caution: Use FedEx or UPS for prepaid return w insurance. We used USPS and our 2 day priority took 1 week which was really scary. However this had nothing to do with BCV.
Overall great experience and would recommend to anyone traveling.
