Travel Information

Visa

All visitors to Hong Kong must have a passport that is valid for at least one month to six months (depending on nationality) after the period of their intended stay in Hong Kong. An application for a visa to enter the HKSAR for a visit or transit may be favorably considered if:


  • The applicant's bona fides are not in doubt.
  • The applicant has adequate funds to cover the duration of his/her stay without working.
  • The applicant holds an onward ticket to the place of his/her destination unless the destination is the Mainland of China or Macao.

Travelers can apply for a Hong Kong visa from the nearest Chinese embassy or consulate. As an alternative, you may also submit your visa application to the HKSAR Immigration Department either directly by post or through a local sponsor.

To shorten the processing time, application forms and supporting documents can be sent by fax in the first instance. However, the original copy of the duly completed application form and the photographs required should be sent immediately to the HKSAR Immigration Department by air mail.

It is suggested that travelers contact and check with Chinese embassy or consulate in your country, or with Immigration Department of the Hong Kong SAR Government for the most updated information on entry formalities: https://www.immd.gov.hk/eng/services/visas/visit-transit/visit-visa-entry-permit.html
