I am looking for a reliable and cheap visa service to get my Chinese visa. I know for NYers, its as simple as walking into the consulate. I live in Florida and we are required to use the Houston office.

Anyone have any recommendations of a company/person which can get it done properly and at a reasonable price?

TIA

Would I be crazy to take a flight EWR-PEK that would get me into Beijing 2 hours before Shabbat?

Wouldn't take such a flight even if you paid me. So I'd say, yes.

I believe AC Aeroplan and Korean are both 40k roundtrip.
