Does a Hong Kong company need a resident director?

Updated: Mar 5



Does a Hong Kong company need a resident director?


A Hong Kong company does not necessarily need a resident director. The Companies Ordinance of Hong Kong only mandates that a company have at least one director, and there are no residency requirements for directors of private limited companies.


However, it's important to note that while a resident director is not mandatory, there is a requirement for a company secretary in public companies and companies limited by guarantee. If the company secretary is a natural person, they must be a Hong Kong resident.


Here's a summary:


  • Private limited companies: Minimum of 1 director, no residency requirement.

  • Public companies and companies limited by guarantee: Minimum of 2 directors, one of whom can be the company secretary. If the company secretary is a natural person, they must be a resident.
