Employment Visas

To meet local human resources needs, Hong Kong offers several immigration schemes that aim to attract and retain a diverse international workforce. 

  • The General Employment Policy (GEP) enables local employers to recruit overseas talent with professional skills not readily available in Hong Kong. Entrepreneurs who plan to start or join a business in Hong Kong can also apply for entry under the GEP.
  • To attract and facilitate the recruitment of I&T expertise, initiatives include the Technology Talent Admission Scheme which enables eligible technology companies and research institutions to recruit R&D talent from the Mainland and overseas. 
  • Experts and professionals from the Mainland who wish to live and work in Hong Kong may apply under the Admission Scheme for Mainland Talents and Professionals (ASMTP).
  • Under the Immigration Arrangements for Non-local Graduates (IANG) initiative, non-local fresh graduates can apply to stay and work in Hong Kong without an offer of employment.
