Welcome to American Citizen Services!

No individual who has been outside of our consular district in the past 14 days is permitted entry to the U.S. Consulate General Hong Kong and Macau. This rule applies to all applicants who have been outside Hong Kong, including those who have traveled from mainland China, but this rule does not apply to those who have traveled from Macau.

Individuals coming to the U.S. Consulate General for consular services are required to wear protective masks prior to entry. Masks are not available at the Consulate. You will not be allowed entry without a mask.

American Citizen Services at the U.S. Consulate General Hong Kong and Macau has returned to full passport, citizenship, and notarial services. For these services, please make an appointment through our online appointment system here. We are opening appointment slots on a week-by-week basis. We encourage you to keep checking the online appointment system if you do not immediately find an open slot. You must be on time for your appointment. Individuals who arrive more than 15 minutes before their scheduled appointment time will not be permitted entry until their scheduled appointment time. Those excessively late will be denied entrance to the Consulate and asked to schedule a new appointment.

Please contact us by email at renunciationhk@state.gov to start or restart your renunciation process. Please note that we will not be able to accommodate all renunciation cases right away and that resumption of this service could be scaled back at any time depending on local public health conditions.
