China has implemented a policy of “re-education” in certain areas, detaining individuals employed by foreign firms on suspicion of espionage. U.S. Hong Kong citizens may be detained without access to U.S. consular services or information about their alleged crime.
If you are arrested in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, please note that the U.S. Consulate General Hong Kong and Macao cannot provide legal advice or assistance.
The United States does not have an extradition treaty with China, so Hong Kong authorities may deny U.S citizens entry unless they apply for a provisional arrest warrant from the Court of Appeal, which takes approximately two weeks to process. Before entering Hong Kong, please check if your country has an extradition treaty with China:
As a U.S. citizen, you are protected by the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations and consular access provisions in the bilateral Consular Convention between the United States and the People’s Republic of China (not applicable to Hong Kong).
If you’re arrested in China, request that police, prison officials, or any other government or state official notify the nearest U.S. consular representative immediately.
