Potential Travel Restrictions


Due to Ebola concerns, some countries are implementing restrictions on travelers from, or who have recently visited, West Africa. Some Consulates are requiring an additional form regarding travel history as part of the visa application process. Other countries may have questionnaires or health screenings upon arrival.

Embassy News


China:
President Obama announced a reciprocal visa validity arrangement between the United States and the People's Republic of China that will strengthen our ever-broadening economic and people-to-people ties. Both countries have agreed to increase the validity of short-term tourist and business visas issued to each other's citizens from one to ten years - the longest validity possible under U.S. law - and increase the validity of student and exchange visas from one to five years. The United States and China began issuing visas in accordance with the new reciprocal agreement on November 12, 2014.

South Africa:
Effective October 1st, 2014, South Africa will enforce new regulations for adults traveling with minors.  Parents traveling with accompanying children will be required to carry the childrens' certified or unabridged birth certificate.  If children are travelling with a guardian, this adult must also carry affidavits from both parents giving permission for the children to travel. They will also need copies of the passports of the parents, as well as the contact details of the parents.

Children traveling with only one parent, in addition to the birth certificate, must produce one of the following: (1) an affidavit from the other parent granting permission for the child to leave the country; (2) a court order granting full parental responsibilities and rights or legal guardianship; (3) if applicable, the death certificate of the other parent registered on the birth certificate.
