Investment Based Visa (to establish / join in business)

This visa is part of the Employment Visa, which sets out for persons who wish to enter the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) for investment under the General Employment Policy (GEP), i.e. to establish or join in business in the HKSAR.


An application for a visa/entry permit to enter the HKSAR for investment may be favourably considered if:

  1. there is no security objection and no known record of serious crime in respect of the applicant;
  2. the applicant has a good education background, normally a first degree in the relevant field, but in special circumstances, good technical qualifications, proven professional abilities and/or relevant experience and achievements supported by documentary evidence may also be accepted;
  3. the applicant is in a position to make substantial contribution to the economy of the HKSAR; and
  4. Overseas Chinese nationals holding People's Republic of China (PRC) passports who meet the criteria below and normal immigration requirements may also apply this visa if:
    the applicant has permanent residence overseas; or
