Applying for Hongkong transit visa

I'm a Sri Lankan student in USA (Missouri). I'm traveling to Malaysia via Hongkong (2 Hour 25 min layover). I possess a valid F1 USA academic visa, Malaysian tourist visa, an Australian tourist visa. I travel with a normal Sri Lankan passport.

1. Do I need a transit visa for Hongkong?. Their website says so

2. Can I apply for a transit visa online?

3. Whats the closest Hongkong visa center to Missouri?

4. Is there any Hongkong embassy number I can contact?

You do not need transit visa ONLY IF you are traveling on KA or CX all the way https:/…hong-kong-transit-visa-waiver.html

For Q2, 3, 4, check with HK Immigration Department webpage https:/…firstTab

You need to either apply the visa by mail to HK Immigration department or by Chinese Embassy.

Chinese embassies/consulates normally do not handle Hong Kong visa applications.

But they will forward the applications to HK Immigration.
