Cause i dont want to go to Philippines and there apply for Hong Kong.Do i need a visa or an entry permit?

    • Replied by: Alice   Oct. 15, 2012 18:41

      as a Filipino passport holder, you are granted 14 days visa free stay in Hong Kong,
      but i don't think 14 days are enough for you to find a job and obtain a work permit.
      so you'd better start to hunt for job now and do the work permit application in UAE.

    Hi I'm from Phils. I just want to ask if Hongkong Immigration needs to show our money. Me, my sister and my friend are going to Hong Kong this coming December 2012 for 2 days only, we already have a round trip airfare ticket, book one of guest house there also. I don't have any bank account, we just save money to spend there about $200 each of us. So my question is and confused do they need a bank statement in us?

    • Replied by: Babara   Oct. 12, 2012 20:01

      you do not need to provide the bank statement if the money you take can cover your trip. usually it is said you need to take at least USD 100 per person for each day.

    Hi,,I'm Philippine passport holder currently in Qatar ,I'm planning to have vacation for atleast 10 days. Do I need to apply visa? Do I need to to have a bank accnt or is it ok if it's in cash? Thanks

    • Replied by: Kina   Oct. 10, 2012 20:29

      10 days in Hong Kong?
      no, you do not need a Hong Kong visa.
      but you need to provide your bank account. if for cash, you need to take at least USD 100 per day, say USD 1,000 for 10 days, excluding hotel and air fare.
      hotel reservation, round-trip air tickets are also required.

      you have to apply the Hong Kong visa in Dubai through the Chinese Embassy there.

    I am a Malaysian I intend to take a relative to visit HK in November. We will stay for 20 days. My relative is a permanent resident of Malaysia. She is a holder of certificate of identity (Malaysia). Does she need a visa for visit Hong Kong. We have already bought our round trip air tickets. Please let me know early. If required please enlighten. We are very anxious.

    • Replied by: Bill   Oct. 09, 2012 19:27

      Malaysian passport holders are exempt from the Hong Kong visa for 90 days.
      dose your relative hold a Malaysian passport?
      if yes, she does not need the Hong Kong visa.

    hi my husband and my daughter is coming here on oct 14-19...i already provided all the document needed for them like passport and contract copy, i also provide a supporting letter for them.. but i just wanted to know about the show money... because for a safety reason i prefer not to let them carry a big amount of cash to avoid some dangerous circumstances during their travel from our place to Clark airport but i will be providing all their expenses... is it okey?

    • Replied by: Andy   Oct. 08, 2012 00:31

      if you will provide the expenses, you need to provide your bank certificate.

    hi, im eden, a filipina working here in hongkong. I want to tour my daughter here in hongkong she is only 10years old. What is the document needed so she can come here in hongkong? Tnx.

    • Replied by: Ben   Sep. 26, 2012 19:04

      does your daughter has her own passport?
      you probably need to apply a visa for her.
      please consult the Hong Kong immigration department for detailed information.

      you do not need to apply a visa, but you have to provide the round-trip air tickets, the hotel reservation, and your bank certificate.

      it is ok if i don't have a hotel reservation? i have a friend living in Hong Kong and i will stay her home just a 4 days only.

    Hi I am planning to Visit Hong Kong This October 5. I am still confused if I need a hotel reservation as I am traveling and staying in my Aunt's place. Actually I have my plane ticket already and I have enough fund during my stay there. Please let me know your opinion.

    • Replied by: Yoyo   Sep. 24, 2012 19:22

      then you do not have to provide the hotel reservation.

    Hi my mom and sister is going to hongkong tomorrow but i just found out that they need an invitation letter thats notarized from Philippine Consulate in HK, is that reallly needed? theyre leaving tomorrow. Please get back to me as soon as you can and pleas elet me know what are our other options.

    • Replied by: Laura   Sep. 20, 2012 19:57

      no, the invitation letter is not required.
      if they are holding the Filipino passport, they are visa-free in Hong Kong for 14 days only with their valid passport, round-trip air tickets, and enough money.

  • ReplyAnn   Philippines    Sep. 17, 2012 20:30

    Hi there! I have booked trip to HK this october but I also want to travel to Shenzhen for a day trip.. is it possible to get a visa at HK or even at the Boarder? thanks!

    • Replied by: Ashley   Sep. 18, 2012 19:02

      you have to apply the visa for mainland China in your country before you leave, but you can also book a one-day tour to Shenzhen with a local travel agency in Hong Kong, so that you do not need to apply the visa for mainland China.

    Hi. My boyfriend is coming home from KSA and will be stopping by HK for a few days. I might travel to HK as well to meet him there. From your previous replies, all I need is my valid passport, return tickets and hotel reservation voucher. Would they consider the voucher even if it is under my boyfriend's name? And what if they want me to provide proof that I have sufficient funds for my travel? What do I need to prepare? Lastly, would it be ok to wait for my boyfriend at the airport a couple of hours since I would arrive earlier than him? Thank you!

    • Replied by: Amanda   Jul. 19, 2012 19:49

      1. isn't there your name on the voucher? or do you have the form of hotel reservation which shows both of your names.
      2. you should provide the certificate of your bank account.
      3. it is ok for you to wait your boyfriend at the airport.

    • Replied by: Liz ( Philippines )   Sep. 16, 2012 19:17

      We booked the hotel reservation online and since they only asked for a single name, the room is under his name. Do we have to change it?

      Can you tell me how much cash should I bring to show that I have sufficient funds? I will bring my ATM card that can dispense money in HKG banks as well.

    • Replied by: Amanda   Sep. 16, 2012 20:37

      I think you may have to add your name in the hotel reservation voucher. I'm not sure how much money you should have as the financial proof. You may call Immigation office of Macau by (853) 2872 5488 to get the accurate answer.

  • ReplyRusty   United Arab Emirates    Sep. 10, 2012 00:23

    • Replied by: Gina   Sep. 04, 2012 18:34

      some said you should take about USD 100 for each day in Hong Kong.
      you also need to show your round-trip air tickets, and voucher of hotel booking.

    • Replied by: Olivia   Aug. 29, 2012 19:54

      you can even reenter Hong Kong the next day, but this kind of "reenter" is not suggested for the second time, cauze the immigration officer may refuse you to enter.

    hello, my family will be going to Hong Kong this October. Is there a need for invitation letter even if we will be staying in a hotel? thank you

    • Replied by: Peter   Aug. 29, 2012 19:47

      no, an invitation letter is not necessary, but you have to provide the round-trip air tickets, the voucher of hotel reservation and enough money that can cover your trip in Hong Kong, sometimes the immigration officer will require you to provide your bank certificate.
