Consular Services During the Rainy and Typhoon Season

Hong Kong’s rainy season is from late summer to autumn. If the Hong Kong Observatory announces a Black Rainstorm Warning or a Typhoon Signal 8, the Consulate General will close.

Individuals with American Citizen Services appointments may return to the Consulate General with their original appointment confirmation letters anytime between 8:30 and 11:00 a.m. within five working days after the Consulate re-opens or reschedule the appointment online.

Individuals with visa appointments that were cancelled due to the typhoon will receive an email inviting them to login in to their account to reschedule their appointment online. All immigrant visa applicants can reschedule themselves using the Global Support System (GSS) website, and use their Case ID to choose a new appointment time.

Please check radio and television broadcasts or the Hong Kong Observatory’s website to check the latest weather conditions.
