Hong Kong requires applicants under four Talent Admission Schemes to submit visa and entry permit applications online
Effective April 2, individuals who seek to obtain new visas or entry permits, or renew their existing visas or entry permits, under four Talent Admission Schemes (TAS) must submit applications online. Individuals who seek to obtain new visas or entry permits under the Quality Migrant Admission Scheme (QMAS), Technology Talent Admission Scheme (TechTAS), Immigration Arrangements for Non-local Graduates (IANG) and Admission Scheme for the Second Generation of Chinese Hong Kong Permanent Residents (ASSG) are now required to submit applications online on the website of the Hong Kong Immigration Department (ImmD). Those who already hold visas or entry permits under these four schemes and seek to renew them must also apply online no more than four weeks prior to these documents’ expiry.
