On January 31, 2020, a new Presidential Proclamation (“Presidential Proclamation 9983”) was issued which added to the ongoing travel restrictions of P.P. 9645 by expanding them to the nationals of six additional countries. The restrictions only apply to immigrant visas and/or diversity visas, not nonimmigrant visas.  More information is available at this link.

Note: Due to the administrative closures of the Immigrant Visa Unit and the Nonimmigrant Visa Unit on February 27, 2020 from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., no visa services will be provided for applicants.

Urgent information for visa applicants regarding novel coronavirus:
Any individuals with pending consular appointments who (1) were physically present within the People’s Republic of China, excluding the Special Administrative Regions of Hong Kong and Macau, within the last 14 days, (2) are experiencing flu-like symptoms, or (3) believe they may have been exposed to the novel coronavirus, are strongly encouraged to postpone their appointments by at least 14 days.  There is no fee to change an appointment and visa application fees are valid for one year in the country where the fee was paid. For questions about rescheduling a pending consular appointment, please send an email to support-hongkong@ustraveldocs.com for specific guidance.  Information concerning rescheduling a pending consular appointment is also available at https://hk.usconsulate.gov/visas/.

Entry of travelers who were present in China, excluding the Special Administrative Regions of Hong Kong and Macau, within 14 days prior to their arrival at a port of entry in the United States is suspended, per Presidential Proclamation. If you reside in China, have recently traveled to China, or intend to travel to China prior to your planned trip to the United States, we recommend you postpone your interview appointment until 14 days subsequent to your departure from China.

To improve speed in our visa processing, we remind all applicants the U.S. Consulate General in Hong Kong will not allow visa applicants to bring in bags larger than 30 x 24 x 7.5 cm.  Please take note of the prohibited items that will not be allowed into the Consulate and may result in you missing your visa appointment.
