MRV Fee Payment for H1B VISA Appointment at Shanghai
Problem: in the US and no debit card of China CITIC Bank to pay the MRV fee.
Solution: go for Taobao service for the payment:
- Service: https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a1z09.2.0.0.51e82e8dvtC24u&id=522849435526&_u=93ef1cfd0e24
- Contact: the fastest way is to communicate in the Taobao app. The messaging dialogue in web browser doesn’t always pop up
- Information needed: CGI号码，护照号，名字，联系电话，邮箱，身份证号码
Note: it’s possible to create an account using US credit card, US address, and gmail. I am using Chase for the payment. The system automatically convert US dollars to RMB, so we don’t have to convert US to RMB within the US bank account, which isn’t supported by certain banks, such as Chase – the one I’m using.
