Hong Kong Work Visa

There are two main work visa options for foreigners in Hong Kong:

  • General Employment Policy (GEP): This is the most common type of work visa in Hong Kong. It is open to professionals with a university degree and relevant work experience. The GEP visa is valid for an initial period of 36 months and can be renewed.

  • Top Talent Pass Scheme (TTPS): This is a new scheme launched by the Hong Kong government in 2022 to attract high-caliber talent to the city. The TTPS visa is open to individuals with exceptional talent or expertise in their field. There is no requirement for a job offer under the TTPS, but applicants must meet a minimum salary threshold. The TTPS visa is valid for an initial period of two years and can be renewed.

In order to apply for a Hong Kong work visa, you will need to submit an application to the Hong Kong Immigration Department. The application process can be complex, so it is advisable to seek advice from a qualified immigration consultant.

Here are some of the general requirements for applying for a Hong Kong work visa:

  • You must have a valid passport.

  • You must have a confirmed job offer from a Hong Kong employer.

  • You must meet the education and experience requirements for the position.

  • You must be in good health and have no criminal record.

The processing time for a Hong Kong work visa application can vary, but it is typically around 8 weeks.
