The U.S. State Department recently reduced nonemergency consular operations at various consular posts in China, citing “operational impacts caused by the surge of COVID-19 infections” across the country.
Additional Information: Chinese authorities continue to update COVID-19 prevention and health control measures as the outbreak spreads. These measures may include residential quarantines, mass testing, closures, transportation disruptions, lockdowns and possible family separation. Individuals with questions regarding other parts of China should contact the Embassy or Consulate General of the district to which they are traveling.
BAL Analysis: U.S. citizens should expect possible delays at U.S. posts in China at this time. Companies with employees in China are encouraged to follow State Department information and warnings closely.
