Please note that we can assist our clients in the application procedure to the Hong Kong Immigration Department in order to obtain a working visa for non-resident individuals that will be employed in Hong Kong.
In case of a newly incorporated company, the Immigration Department will require some additional information about its business activity, including a business plan and solid financial proof. The business plan will be verified in the following years when the renewal application will be submitted.
Please note that the Hong Kong working visa is granted for one year for the first application and then renewed every two years, up to a total of seven consecutive years, when the individual can apply for the permanent resident status.
The timing for obtaining a working visa in Hong Kong depends on the complexity of the case and it may vary from two to four months.
