Appointments During Severe Weather
Severe weather may cause delays or closure at the Consulate office, especially during May to November.
If you have an appointment during an unexpected office closure or severe weather event that prevents you from attending your appointment, the passport and consular team will contact you to reschedule your appointment.
For your safety and that of our staff, the office will not open if a Black Rain signal is in force at our normal opening time. When a Black Rain signal is lowered, it may take up to an hour to open and we may operate at a reduced capacity due to staff absences.
Once opened, the office will remain in operation during all rain signals. We will do our best to serve you as soon as possible if you are delayed because of the weather.
Typhoon Signal 8
For your safety and that of our staff, we will not open if a Storm Signal No. 8 or higher is in force during normal opening hours and where it remains in force after 1pm. We will attempt to resume normal operations as quickly as possible if the storm signal is lowered before 1pm.
In all other circumstances, we will remain open until the Hong Kong Observatory indicates that a Storm Signal No. 8 or higher is expected to be raised. If this happens, we will finish serving current appointments before closing the Consulate. We are not always able to contact all clients to advise that we are closed, but will attempt to do this where possible.
Visit the Hong Kong Observatory website for more information on weather-related closures.
