Hi all...does anyone know if I can apply for a U.S. Tourist Visa from the U.S. consulate in Hong Kong, if I am not a Hong Kong resident?
I am currently in Hong Kong on a 90-day visitor visa (just visiting Hong Kong from Japan). I want to go to the United States directly from Hong Kong and therefore wish to apply for a U.S. visa from Hong Kong's U.S. consulate.
Since I am not a HK resident, does anyone know if I can still apply for a U.S. visa in Hong Kong or do I need to go back to Japan to apply from the U.S. consulate in Japan?
BY THE WAY...I know many of you are thinking since I live in Japan, I do not need a U.S. visa because Japanese citizens quality for the Visa Waiver Program to the U.S.
Yes, that is true, EXCEPT, I am not a Japanese Citizen. I am a citizen of India, but I live in Japan. So I am 100% sure I need to apply for a Visa before I go to the U.S.
My main question is can I apply for U.S. Visa from U.S. consulate in Hong Kong consulate, given the fact I am not a HK resident?
Please advise, any help/input greatly appreciated.
I dissected the U.S. Consulate in HK website, but could not find the answer to my question.
