Hong Kong Visa Information for any Nationality

Hong Kong Visa Information as it applies to every Nationality. These are entry permit requirements for the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) of the People's Republic of China only. NOT for China.

The Immigration office of Hong Kong does not guarantee entry to Hong Kong even if all the Immigration requirements set out on this Hong Kong visa information page are met.

The guys at Immigration still have the right to refuse entry even as you stand in the airport arrival area, on the cusp of it all. I wondered how many people had been forced out of town by dawn without ever leaving the airport.

No visa or entry permit is required for any purpose if you hold any of the following travel documents:

Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Passport,
British National (Overseas) Passport,
Hong Kong Certificate of Identity,
Hong Kong Re-entry permit (for entry from the Mainland of China and the region of Macau only).

If Part I does not apply to you, you must obtain a visa or entry permit to work, study, establish or join in any business or to take up residence in the HKSAR. But not everyone needs a visa just to visit for tourist purposes. But that all depends on your nationality and / or the type of travel document you hold.

  • PART II

Unless you fit into Part I then you have to get a visa or entry permit to work, study, establish or join in any business or to take up residence in the HKSAR. Otherwise, you are taking the risk of being refused admission on arrival.

If you are just a tourist coming for a visit then just look for your specific Hong Kong Visa Information for your country in the list below.

Visitors are required to have enough money to last the duration of their stay without working and, unless in transit to the Mainland of China or the region of Macau, to hold an onward or return ticket. It seemed to me that this was a non issue for most nationalities but not all. I am just stating the rules as they're laid out in the immigration guidelines for Hong Kong.

Visitors are not permitted to take up employment of any kind. That means paid employment or even volunteer work. You also cannot establish or join in any business, or to enter school as a student, nor, change your immigration status after arrival.

That's done by getting the appropriate Hong Kong visa or entry permit at the nearest Chinese diplomatic and consular mission.

If you are a Chinese resident in the region of Taiwan, you'll have to submit your application for an entry permit through one of the authorised airlines.

HKSAR visa requirements for the following foreign countries / territories:

Where the heck you come from or what type of passport/travel documents you hold.Amount of days you can stay in Hong Kong. You can't exceed your visit unless you're nuts.If it says 'Visa Required' then you must apply to get one at the nearest Embassy. You do not need a Visa for Hong Kong if you are just transferring flights and not leaving the airport transit area.
