Hong Kong, officially known as the Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China is a burst of culture and colour. Housing 18 districts, Hong Kong is one of the most heavily populous regions in the world and the city with the most number of skyscrapers in the world. A major port and shopping hub, Hong Kong is the land of an iconic skyline, delectable cuisine, and protected lush nature reserves.

Home to the second-largest sitting Buddha statue, the Tian Tan Buddha, the Fragrant Harbour has a majority of Confucian, Buddhist and Taoist followers. While sustaining ancient culture and tradition through architecture and festivities, Hong Kong perseveres to stand as an entertainment hub at the same time. Ocean Park, Victoria Peak, Victoria Harbour and The Peak Tram are some brilliant sites in Hong Kong.

This town of skyscrapers and some of the most beautiful skylines carries out Cantonese and British architectural aspects gained from its colonial period induced with the regional feng shui design. With art being a vital characteristic of this Gourmet Paradise, Hong Kong attracts visitors to one of Asias biggest cultural festivals, the Hong Kong Art Festival apart from the renowned Chinese New Year Night Parade.

Hong Kong Visit/Transit Visa

To go to Hong Kong for tourism purposes, Indians have to complete the pre-arrival registration online. Hong Kong offers a visa-free stay for citizens of most countries starting typically from 7 days, 14 days, 30 days to 90 days, though this wholly depends on the country in question. Only British nationals are allowed to stay in Hong Kong for up to 180 days without a visa. In order to stay longer than your visa-free period, you need to apply for a visa or entry permit ahead of travelling to Hong Kong. For such stays you need to show proof of funds whether they are adequate to support your stay in the country without work, and you also need to have a return ticket unless you are in transit to mainland China or Macau Special Administrative Region. This category of visa does not allow visitors to take up an employment or establish a business enterprise, or sign up for a course in Hong Kong.

Eligibility Criteria For A Hong Kong Visa For Indians

  • If an Indian citizen is planning to travel to Hong Kong, they need to get a visa first.
  • Since 2017 the government of Hong Kong has introduced a Hong Kong pre-arrival registration or PAR that grants an electronic travel authorisation to Indian citizens to travel to the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR).
  • But you need to get your Hong Kong visa application processed by an OTA who would do the necessary documentation on your behalf and grant you the Hong Kong eVisa online.
  • The PAR visa travel authorisation comes with a validity of 6 months from the date of approval. It makes it possible to stay in Hong Kong beyond the period of expiry provided the traveller arrives in Hong Kong before the last day of validity and stays at a time for only up to 14 days.
  • The Hong Kong pre-arrival registration is offered to Indian citizens for travelling to Hong Kong when their purpose of visit is business, tourism, visit family and friends or transit -only if they are exiting the airport.

How to apply for Hong Kong Visit/Transit Visa?

  • An applicant should visit the official Government website of Hong Kong for a pre-arrival registration and fill only the correct information.
  • Once the application is submitted, the computer processes the application automatically and the result is notified instantly to the applicant.
  • If the result is successful, the registrant should have the "PAR Notification Slip" printed.
  • An applicant should crosscheck the entered data on the slip to verify if all the details are correct before signing it.
  • For some reasons, if the PAR is unsuccessful, an applicant should apply for a valid entry visa at the Immigration Department so that he/she is allowed to visit HKSAR.

Hong Kong Visit/Transit Visa Fee

If an applicant is unsuccessful to acquire a PAR, he/she has to instantly apply for a valid VISA directly with the help of the Hong Kong Immigration Department. The visa fee is 190 HKD per passport and has to be paid through a Bank Draft.
