From US Consulate...

A consular officer from the United States Consulate in Chengdu will be in Kunming, and will be able to provide limited consular services, on Friday, June 22, 2012. There are a limited number of appointment slots for this visit. You must email us to reserve a time; please include your full name and what service you require. When your appointment has been confirmed, we will email you the time and location confirmation.

Limited American Citizen Services:

The consular officer will be able to perform a number of limited American Citizen Services. For some of these services, some of your materials may have to be brought to Chengdu for processing. If this is the case, they can be returned to you via the local Chinese EMS mailing service. However, mailing through EMS is done at your own risk, as we cannot guarantee EMS service. To use the EMS mailing service, you must bring your address (in Chinese) and a 30 RMB EMS mailing fee. Alternatively, you can come to pick up your documents at the U.S. Consulate General in Chengdu during regularly scheduled ACS hours.

Please note the consular officer will have no change available, so exact change is required. Fees are listed on our website.

A small number of required forms will be available, but it is suggested that you download, print, and fill out any required forms yourself. These are all available on our website: chengdu.usembassy-china.org.cn/service.html.

Also, please bring originals and photocopies of all materials submitted you will be submitting.

Services available:
- Passport applications and renewals
- Passport add pages
- Certificates of Marriageability
- Notarials

Regards,
American Citizen Services
U.S. Consulate General, Chengdu

I think the website is for making an appointment in Chengdu. For Kunming I believe you have to email them:

@TIC you would need to ask them what limited number of services will be on offer. But I guess you would need to be more specific. I.E. you apply and they will tell you if they can offer that service in their visit to KMG. I guess they will not be doing visas for a start.

Services available:
- Passport applications and renewals
- Passport add pages
- Certificates of Marriageability
- Notarials

Other services potentially available with advance notice - contact them via email directly to arrange. And as Colin notes - please don't whine at the consulate for the obscene sodomizing rates they charge us - the rates are set by the State Department, who incidentally gives BILLIONS of our tax dollars away to other countries - Iraq, Afghanistan, Philippines, Samoa, etc ad infinitum.

The US consulate will be here in a couple weeks. It's a good opportunity to get a new passport or pages put in without having to go to Chengdu. However, spaces are limited. Their message is below...
