The Consular Authentication System was officially released in December 2014, it is an information management system that fulfills consular authentication service for local foreign affairs offices. The system solved the problems of inefficiency of traditional service mode, inconvenience of inquiry and unavailable information sharing with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, standardized the consular authentication management process.
As the number of Chinese and foreign personnel exchanges increases and cooperation in various fields continue to expand, the consular authentication service has been growing really fast. In 2013, the consular authentication service handled by local foreign affairs offices reached as many as 666,000 cases, making that an increase of 23.7% over the same period of previous year. The contradiction between the increasing workload and insufficient office resources was getting more and more prominent, which has seriously hampered the development of consular authentication service. In the next year, the Consular Department of MFA issued a document (No. 904) to provincial as well as municipal foreign affairs offices, which was called “Initiation of Network Connection on Consular Authentication Service for Local Foreign Affairs Offices”, put forward relevant requirements and instructions on authentication system construction.
The release of the consular authentication system marked a significant step for local foreign affairs offices.

The successful bid laid a solid foundation for NJA in foreign affairs informatization area, it is also a demonstration of NJA’s professional and technical strength in this field.
