The Coronavirus emergency resulted in the United States suspending the issue of American visas to Chinese citizens. At the same time, the U.S. announced donations to China to assist with the outbreak of Coronavirus. Air China is canceling Beijing-Washington and Shenzhen-Los Angeles flights after all U.S. Airlines already canceled flight services between the United States and China As of February 10, 2020, regular visa services at the U.S Embassy in Beijing and the U.S. Consulates General in Chengdu, Guangzhou, Shanghai and Shenyang are suspended.\u00a0 Due to the ongoing situation relating to the novel coronavirus, the U.S. Embassy and Consulates have very limited staffing and may be unable to respond to requests regarding regular visa services. \u00a0 While some limited emergency appointments may be available, intending applicants should note that on Sunday, February 2, a Presidential Proclamation was issued that suspended entry for individuals who have been in China less than 14 days prior to their arrival in the U.S.\u00a0 More information about the Proclamation can be found on our website here:\u00a0https:\/\/travel.state.gov\/content\/travel\/en\/traveladvisories\/ea\/Presidential-Proclamation-Coronavirus.html. \u00a0 If during this period someone has urgent travel that may qualify for an exemption under the proclamation, one can submit an emergency appointment request. Please note if your urgent travel does not qualify under an exemption, your request will be denied until the proclamation is rescinded. The United States is and will remain the world\u2019s most generous donor. We encourage the rest of the world to match our commitment.\u00a0\u00a0Working together, we can have a profound impact to contain this growing threat. This week the State Department has facilitated the transportation of nearly 17.8 tons of donated medical supplies to the Chinese people, including masks, gowns, gauze, respirators, and other vital materials.\u00a0\u00a0These donations are a testament to the generosity of the American people. Today, the United States government is announcing it is prepared to spend up to $100 million in existing funds to assist China and other impacted countries, both directly and through multilateral organizations, to contain and combat the novel coronavirus.\u00a0\u00a0This commitment \u2013 along with the hundreds of millions generously donated by the American private sector \u2013 demonstrates strong U.S. leadership in response to the outbreak.
