    Hi, I'm Andrew.
    I work here in macau and my girlfriend wants to go here and she is coming from Abu Dhabi. However, she's going to arrive in Hongkong due to a fully booked flight to Macau. When she arrives at Hongkong,we just planned to take on the ferry to go here in macau.
    How long could be her maximum period of stay here in macau?
    By the way, she holds a Philippine Passport.

      if you do not have a sponsor in hong Kong, you have to provide your round trip air tickets, the hotel reservation, your valid passport, completely filled out visa applicaiton form, Your recent photograph (affixed to the application form), and Photocopy of proof of your financial standing, e.g. bank statements, savings accounts passbooks, tax receipts, etc. and proof of employment (if any), e.g. company leave letter, salary slips, etc.
      all these above mentioned documents are used to support your Hong Kong visa applicaion.
      you need to submit the documents to the Chinese Embassy.

      Filipino passport holders are exempt from Hong Kong visa fpr 14 day, so you do not need the visa for your 5 days trip.
      however, you are required to show your round-trip air tickets, hotel reservation, and pocket money that can cover your expense in Hong Kong (at least HKD 300 per day per person)

    I'm from morocco. I want to go to Hong Kong to work and live there.
    I can stay in Hong Kong for the 30 days.
    I want to know that after 30 days what I need to do.
    If I need to apply for visa then which documents i will require to submit.

    • Replied by: Amy   Oct. 29, 2012 20:16

      you had to go back to your country after 30 days or you are considered as overstay in Hong Kong, which may leave bad records on your passport.

      if you want to work in Hong Kong, you need to find a job first, and sign the work contract with your future employer, and apply the work visa with the help of your employer.

    Hi, I'm from England. Planning to travel in South East Asia from Jan to March then fly to Hong Kong on 1st April, plan to be in that area around a week before flying over to Taiwan and after a week there flying back to Shanghai, I will fly home from Beijing on the 12th May (hopefully!). Please could you advise me on visa's, I don't want to book flights if I get refused permission into the country. Do I need a visa for Hong Kong? Do I need a double entry or because I am going HK to Taiwan does that mean I am only entering China once when I fly to Shanghai. I won't have accomodation booked as I'm travelling and nothing is concrete, if I like one area more than another I will stay there longer but I will book my flight home if I know there won't be a problem. Also how far in advance can I get a visa (I heard no more than 3 mths but I will be in Thailand or somewhere then). Sorry for all the questions, hope my plans are clear, would be great to get some good advice, I'm just going round in circles atr the moment!

    • Replied by: Lisa   Oct. 22, 2012 20:10

      no, you do not need the visa for Hong Kong. you need a single-entry L visa for mainland China, as it means you enter China once when flying to Shanghai. you need to provide an invitation letter from a Chinese organization or permanent resident in China if you do not have round trip air tickets and hotel reservation. usually it is advised to apply the visa one month in advance and not more than 3 months prior to your departure date. but for your case, you can apply the visa for mainland China in Hong Kong.

    Hi there! I'm a Sri Lankan Passport holder living and working in Singapore holding a S Pass. According to the above table, Sri Lankans who hold a official passport need not get HK visa for a short visit.

    I'm planning to visit HK in next Jan for 5 days. Does this mean I need not apply for HK visa? Appreciate your reply!

    • Replied by: Hank   Oct. 21, 2012 02:30

      If you go to Hk for personal affairs, I'm afraid you will still have to apply for a visa. You can call Hk immigration office directly to have a confirmation by tel.: (852) 2824 6111.
