Hong Kong immigrants to get Visa free access - US Envoy

The year 2016 the non-immigrant visa saw 68,834 issued to Hong Kong which was approved for travel to the US. A fresh announcement was made which would allow candidates to pay their visa fees online. Hong Kong is not in the enlisted in 38 nations waived off to travel to the US for business purpose or tourism for 90 days without obtaining a visa.


US Envoy confirmed Hong Kong that he would pertinently push for the Visa-free access to the US for the people of Hong Kong. Kurt Tong, US Consul to Hong Kong & Macau said,”It’s not impossible that Congress would pass legislation that would allow us to not have the visa process for bearers of Hong Kong passports.”


Hong Kong may have faced the Visa waived off amendment try in 2013 but the departure of  Edward Snowden from Hong Kong disrupted the Sino US relations. But with the onset on the Trump governance in the US, there seems to be vetting and screening of visa application based on the social media platforms used by the applicant. Hence US envoy would again put admissible force to attain visa-free access for the Hong Kongers.
