US State Department Issues Level 4 Alert: Do Not Travel to China

 

Per, https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/traveladvisories/traveladvisories/china-travel-advisory.html

 

"Do not travel to China due to novel coronavirus first identified in Wuhan, China. On January 30, the World Health Organization has determined the rapidly spreading outbreak constitutes a Public Health Emergency of International Concern. Travelers should be prepared for travel restrictions to be put into effect with little or no advance notice.  Commercial carriers have reduced or suspended routes to and from China.

 

Those currently in China should consider departing using commercial means. The Department of State has requested that all non-essential U.S. government personnel defer travel to China in light of the novel coronavirus. 
 

In an effort to contain the novel coronavirus, the Chinese authorities have suspended air, road, and rail travel in the area around Wuhan and placed restrictions on travel and other activities throughout the country. On January 23, 2020, the Department of State ordered the departure of all non-emergency U.S. personnel and their family members from Wuhan. The U.S. government has limited ability to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens in Hubei province.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued a Warning for all of China."

Their response is a bit vague.  Are officers who do interviews for visas non-essential staff or essential?  Are American services such as passport replacements still available to do, or are those employees non-essential and not returning?  They really need to communicate better, according to their social media on Wechat and websites, they are open for regular business today, but hearing from people there is nobody answering the doors at some locations, and interviews are being cancelled with the USCIS.

Does this mean they will halt processing any visas from China? 

 

  According to their home page, the US embassy and consulates in China are closed until Feb 7th, although that will likely be reassessed and could change. The site indicates that only emergency services are being offered during that time frame.

Remember:  The Chinese are not the enemy, the virus is the enemy.

 

Let’s hope this does not turn into a pandemic.
