Five Criteria To Qualify For Hong Kong Immigration

Hong Kong is a well-known cosmopolitan city. Due to its superior geographic location and the continuous inflow of international capital, Hong Kong has developed into a global financial hub.  But there are more to just investment opportunity in this small city of seven million population.  Hong Kong is a free economy with among the lowest tax rates in Asia and no inheritance tax imposed on its people.

Despite China taking over the management of this Special Administration Region since 1997, people continue to enjoy protection of private property and full privacy of human rights.   People in Hong Kong live a free spirit life with no fears of any ideological and political detention.

Cost of living in Hong Kong is relatively low compared to neighbouring developed nations like Japan, Korea, Singapore and Taiwan.  Public transportation, medical and telecommunication services are very efficient.  Hong Kong also boasts of several tourist attractions like the Disneyland Hong Kong, Victoria Harbor, The Peak and the Giant Buddha to name a few.  When it comes to dining, arts, theatre and shopping, Hong Kong has attracted many world renown chefs, international fashion brands and performances. Indeed, tourists are often left with wonderful memories of the city that they call Hong Kong the entertainment paradise.  All these unique characteristics blended with a multi-cultural skilled labour force has made Hong Kong a top destination for immigrants globally, especially people from China who share very similar culture and the Chinese language.

Due to globalisation and the rapid development of economy of China, the HKSAR Government has implemented the Capital Investment Entrant Scheme (CIES) since October 2003 in order to facilitate the entry for the eligible investors and their family. The scheme was launched to meet the needs of the future economic development and to attract more capital inflow to Hong Kong.

1.  Be aged 18 or above when applying for entry under the Scheme;

4.  Have no adverse record both in Hong Kong and country/region of residence; and
