Service Availability:  The U.S. Consulate General Hong Kong and Macau is currently offering IR1, IR2, CR1, CR2, and K immigrant visa appointments and all classes of nonimmigrant visa services. While the Consulate aims to process cases as soon as practicable, there is likely to be increased wait times for completing such services due to substantial backlogs. The MRV fee is valid and may be used to schedule an interview appointment in the country where it was purchased within one year of the date of payment. If you have an urgent matter and need to travel immediately, please follow the guidance provided at https://www.ustraveldocs.com/hk/hk-niv-expeditedappointment.asp to request an emergency appointment.  


Payment Validity Extended:  The U.S. Consulate General Hong Kong and Macau understands that many visa applicants have paid the visa application processing fee and are still waiting to schedule a visa appointment. We are working diligently to restore all routine visa operations as quickly and safely as possible. In the meantime, rest assured that the U.S. Consulate General will extend the validity of your payment (known as the MRV fee) until December 31, 2021, to allow all applicants who were unable to schedule a visa appointment as a result of the suspension of routine consular operations an opportunity to schedule and/or attend a visa appointment with the already paid fee. Please continue to monitor this site for information on when we will return to routine visa operations. 


Effective Monday August 31, the Centre O location in Sheung Wan will be closed and replaced with the new Centre O station in Admiralty, located in 14F 8 Hennessy Road, China Tower Building, Admiralty, Hong Kong (MTR Admiralty, Pacific Place Exit PP3). Opening hours Monday to Friday 9:00am-12:00pm and 1:00pm-6:00pm, closed on Saturdays, Sundays and Public Holidays. 


Please note that the Macau pickup centre option is not available for selection until further notice. Applicants may still choose the other 3 available pickup locations in Tsim Sha Shui, Wan Chai or Kwun Tong. 


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.
