The U. S. Consulate General Wuhan reopened in 2008 after an absence of nearly 60 years. The Consulate's office is located in the New World International Trade Tower, in the Hankou District, of Wuhan.

When it reopened as an American Presence Post (APP), it was staffed by one American Foreign Service Officer.

The Consulate General of the United States in Wuhan was established in November 2007 under the provisions of the 1981 U.S.-China Agreement on Consular Facilities. The Consulate General focuses on providing emergency services to American citizens in the region, promoting U.S. exports and fostering other aspects of our commercial and economic relations, and expanding cultural and educational exchanges between the U.S. and central China.[1]

The Consulate General in Wuhan will begin processing visas in 2015.[2] [3]

This is one of six American diplomatic and consular posts in the People's Republic of China. The others are: the Embassy in Beijing, and consulates general in Guangzhou, Chengdu, Shenyang and Shanghai.

The current Consul General is Vlad Lipshutz[4]
