Hong Kong immigration

Ranked #3 on Forbes “Best Countries for Business” list and a regular top destination for expatriate work assignments – Hong Kong is no stranger to international business.

While your company can build an attractive office with all the right perks in the “Pearl of the Orient,” one of your main obstacles in this APAC destination will be filling open positions that may not have a strong local talent pipeline. To combat this challenge, many companies choose to hire or relocate foreign nationals to Hong Kong as part of their talent mobility policy.

Register to watch our on-demand webinar "Harness Hong Kong – Visa & Immigration in the Pearl of the Orient" and develop the knowledge of Hong Kong's immigration system that your company will need to build a successful global mobility program and identify workforce solutions in this key APAC location.

You will receive specific guidance on:

  • Economic and culture overview of Hong Kong
  • Initial employment visa process (including status of dependents)
  • Renewal of employment visa process
  • Atypical applications and trends
  • Immigration common issues and the benefits of Hong Kong

This presentation will increase your understanding of Hong Kong immigration and take your global mobility program to the next level.
