Hong Kong Tourist Visa

Hong Kong tourist visa

China’s special administrative region (SAR), Hong Kong, is a city that attracts a lot of tourists. The former English colony introduced an Individual Visit Scheme (IVS) in 2003, allowing people to enter it with a visa.

This visa, with a validity of three years, allows visitors to enter the city multiple times and stay for 60 days during each trip. You have to pay HKD 190 to obtain the scheme. 

Hong Kong has a visa agreement with 170 countries that do not need to fill out a pre-arrival registration form (PAR) before visiting it. 

You can register online for it. But people from other countries need to fill it, which will allow them to say in Hong Kong for 14 days. They will then be permitted to enter Hong Kong after paying a minor fee. 

The eligibility criteria to apply for it are the following. 
  • A passport with a validity of six months after the date of your Hong Kong visit.
  • Proof of fee payment
  • Copy of the passport’s first and last pages with a minimum of three blank pages.
