美国签证有望,第二批美国外交官于7月15日返回中国!

自2020年2月3日起,美国驻北京大使馆和美国驻成都、广州、上海和沈阳总领事馆暂停普通签证业务的办理,全球美签办理也相继关闭。等待了半年多的时间,近日几个消息终于让大家看到了一丝曙光!

据路透社报道,根据美国国务院的内部电子邮件,超过100名美国外交官及其家属于7月15日飞往中国,在双边紧张局势加剧之际,华盛顿继续推进重启外交使团的计划。

这次航班是1200多名美国外交官及其家属返回中国所需的众多航班中的第二班。

路透社查阅到的一封国务院电子邮件说,正在安排更多的航班。

“对于那些仍在等待返航的旅客,我们正在向海关申请在未来几周内飞往广州、上海和天津/北京的后续航班的审批。由于中国的规定,这些航班将限制在最多120名乘客。”

而华盛顿和北京已经就如何让美国外交官回国的条款进行了数周的谈判,双方的主要分歧是检测和检疫程序、航班频率以及一次可以带多少人回国。

此前美国曾计划安排在7月8日和7月10日包机安排外交官返华,但是因防疫措施存在分歧,计划被搁浅。十几位美国外交官表示,他们担心中国会控制测试,可能会获得自己的DNA样本以及家庭成员可能会被单独隔离检疫。但这次就这些问题中美双方已经调解成功。

内部电子邮件也表示,到达中国后,各个年龄段的成人和儿童都应做好接受鼻和/或咽拭子COVID-19测试的准备。

看来联邦政府已经决定就这一个问题作出妥协。可以看出为了尽快恢复外交人员的正常工作,两国都在积极做出努力,相信不久之后美国签证就能逐步恢复正常。

这批外交人员在广州落地后,应该还需要进行两周的隔离,之后才能开始工作。按时间推算,国内开放签证的时间最快也要到八月中旬了。

在当地时间7月6日ICE发布的签证新规中,特别要求各美国大学在8月4日之前学校必须为学生发放新的I-20表,以便学生可以申请F-1学生签证。而I-20与F1美国签证是紧密联系的,所以接下来美国肯定会尽快推动国际学生的F-1签证。

7月11日,美国国务院领事事务局的官方推特,回复一位网友关于“何时重新开放签证预约”的问题时表示:从7月15日起,美国在海外的使领馆将陆续开始安排签证面试。

而随着签证的逐渐开放,相信美国对中国的 Travel Ban 应该很快就会解除。
