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

Just be sure you know if it's "The People's Republic of China",.....or "Nationalist China", before you go!!!!!!!

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 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.
