    Default Getting a Chinese Visa at the Chinese consulate in SDQ

    Does anyone have experience with the SDQ Chinese consulate in knowing if they'll process a Visa to China for Americans?

    There is not going to be a choice in any country. No country recognizes two Chinas.

    Nationalist China (Taiwan), is officially called "The Republic of China".

    The Dominican Republic just has a Chinese trade office. They do not offer visas there.

    The Dominican Republic is one of a dwindling number of nations that recognize the Republic of China government, located on Taiwan, as the official government of China.

    Here is the list:
    The countries that currently recognize Taiwan are:
    1. Burkina Faso
    2. El Salvador
    3. Belize
    4. Nauru
    5. Palau
    6. Marshall Islands
    7. Solomon Islands
    8. Kiribati
    9. Tuvalu
    10. Guatemala
    11. Paraguay
    12. St. Vincent and the Grenadines
    13. Nicaragua
    14. Dominican Republic
    15. Honduras
    16. Vatican City
    17. Panama
    18. Swaziland
    19. Malawi
    20. Sao Tome and Principe
    21. Haiti
    22. Gambia
    23. St. Kitts and Nevis
    24. Saint Lucia

    These are all smaller countries, and as a rule, in return the Taiwanese invest in them and offer various services to them in return for the recognition.


    The Peoples' Republic has offices that do everything that an Embassy can do for foreigners in most of these countries.
    The Taiwanese have trade offices that do the same in other countries.

    The POC and the PRC are officially rivals, but they have various deals between them, because they are pragmatic, which is what Chinese always were before Mao and now after him.

    The Chinese would always rather do business than fight. Only during the first 20 years or so between 1950 1bd 1980 were they dogmatic.

    I find it somewhat surprising that Nicaragua is on the list. The Sandinistas were generally pro-Communist. Perhaps the change was made after Chamorro was elected and has continued because Taiwan offers them a better deal.
