Change in H Visa Applications in China

January 31, 2019

Starting March 1, 2019, interviews for H visas will be conducted only at the U.S. Embassy Beijing, U.S. Consulate General Guangzhou, and U.S. Consulate General Shanghai.  H visa interviews will no longer be conducted at U.S. Consulate General Chengdu or U.S. Consulate General Shenyang. These changes were made due to the volume and complexity of H visa cases and to ensure that the proper resources and expertise are put in place to efficiently process them. This change also applies to L visa applications, which does not affect Harvard employees. For more information, please click here. You can also reach out to your HIO advisor for any questions.
