What is the process for Hong Kong Visa for Citizens of India?

If you are a shopaholic, you can’t resist visit Hong Kong which give an extensive range of shopping options. Apart from this, a mix of multiple cultures is also a reason behind huge tourist attraction. Unlike other countries Hong Kong follows a simple process for Visa and here I have explained what and how.

The immigration department has announced that Indians need to complete an online pre-arrival registration successfully before Hong Kong visa-free. Currently, you can visit Hong Kong visa-free for a duration of 14 days.

You must complete an online pre-arrival registration process and get it done before leaving for a 14 day visit to Hong Kong by Hong Kong Visa-free entry. You may ignore it if you belong to a specific category of people who are not required to complete pre-registration arrival.

Follow the below process:

  • Apply for pre-arrival registration by accessing a platform for Indians at the GovHK website (gov.hk/en/apps/immdindianparreg.htm).
  • The pre-arrival registration process is free.
  • Fill out all required information.
  • After fulfilling all information, the computer will process for registration and pop up the result instantly.
  • If your registration result shows successful, take a print out of notification slip for pre-arrival registration generated by the system on a plain paper of A4 size.
  • The printout will help you resolve the purposes of boarding a conveyance bound for Hong Kong as well as immigration clearance upon arrival.
  • This pre-arrival registration will be valid for 6 months or your expiry date of passport linked to it.
  • During the validity period of pre-arrival registration, you can visit Hong Kong multiple time for up to 14 days by showing the print of notification slip and the passport linked to it.
  • You can directly apply for visa to the immigration department if your pre-arrival registration is not successful
