She can enter Hong Kong without any problem if she has a valid US visa in her passport - she will be issued a 7 day stay Hong Kong visa upon entry, if she is doing more than just changing planes for another flight. My wife did this with her K-1 and we have had friends do the same with student visas. If she is just changing planes in Hong Kong and will not leave the airport then she will not have to worry about HK immigration at all. Either way, just make sure that she has her complete itinerary printed up to show when she boards the flight from the mainland to HK - they will want to verify that she will be continuing on to the US within 7 days of entering HK.

She might get held up if taking the ferry to HGK, at the border crossing, but I THINK SHE'LL BE OK with the documents you mentioned. She might have to pay some squeeze to get the border fella to actually do his job, let her in without the big HKG travel permit, but she's allowed in without the permit, as she's immigrating to USA, and has all paperwork in hand to prove it. DO NOT LET the border goons open the 'sealed envelope', though.

Apparently, the 'bus crossing' is easier than the ferry crossing, them border goons is trained !
