Hong Kong country travel guide

Steamy and gargantuan, Hong Kong has evolved into one of Asia’s most lovable cities. Its incredible skyline- part neon, part steel-and-glass, part towering hills – is one of the most majestic in the world, but it’s a mere backdrop to the 24-hour flurry of activity that makes Hong Kong what it is. Read more

From its boat-buzzed waterfront to its packed dim sum restaurants, its incense-smoked temples to its clattering teahouses, its street markets to its old-world hotels, Hong Kong is a destination teeming with energy. For travellers, the best advice is to go with the flow.

Situated at the mouth of the Pearl River Delta on China’s south-western coast, Hong Kong is a city that has a remarkable mix of Eastern and Western influences. The handover of this territory from Britain to China was back in 1997, but the centuries of British rule still have a lasting legacy, tangible in everything from the grand period architecture to the local passion for horse-racing. Even the name of Hong Kong’s centrepiece – the iconic Victoria Harbour – harks back to another era, and today there’s an international flavour to the destination that sets it apart from other Chinese cities. The gastronomy, nightlife and shopping are all world-class.

Hong Kong is one of the most densely-populated places on earth. Composed of three different islands (Hong Kong Island, Kowloon, and the New Territories), there are more than enough sights and sensations to soak up during any type of trip you have planned. From traditional street markets and beautiful temples to the fast-moving, skyscraper-dotted streets, to the endless food and drink options, there is so much to do here. Hong Kong Island, with its glistening skyscrapers and high-end shopping malls, is in many ways the heartbeat of the city. Get down to street level, however, and the laneways, wet markets and traditional Chinese haunts are a reminder that beyond the city lies a working class populace still making ends meet the old fashioned way – and often the hard way. It’s also worth remembering, of course, that there’s far more to Hong Kong than the city itself. Its natural attractions include hiker-friendly ranges, volcanic landscapes, pristine woodlands, sleepy islands, protected marine parks and miles of golden beaches.

With effect from January 23, 2017, the Immigration Department of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Government has made Pre-Arrival Registration a compulsory requirement for all Indian nationals who intend to visit Hong Kong visa-free for 14 days. Each pre-arrival registration for an Indian national will be valid for six months or until the expiry date of the Indian passport linked to it, whichever is earlier. We can assist you, and the process is fully online The online platform for pre-arrival registration has been opened on December 19, 2016. Indian passport holders must complete Pre-arrival Registration (PAR) online prior to arrival in Hong Kong.

The government of Hong Kong recently made it mandatory for all Indian nationals to pre-register and obtain a successful pre-arrival registration notification slip online, except some limited categories of persons who have been exempted. However, by and large, this is applicable to almost all visitors to Hong Kong.

Pre-arrival Registration is required for each individual. If you are traveling as a family, each person in the family must apply for Pre-arrival Registration individually.

A person admitted as a visitor in the HKSAR is not allowed to take any employment, whether paid or unpaid; establish or join in any business; or become a student at a school, university or other educational institution in the HKSAR. If you wish to enter the HKSAR for employment, study, training or residence, you should apply for an appropriate visa to the Immigration Department of the HKSAR under the existing arrangements.

Each Pre-arrival Registration is linked to a specific passport. So, in the event of loss of passport or passport renewal, a new Pre-arrival Registration must be made.

Kindly also note that an Indian national coming to HKSAR for a stay exceeding 14 days or for a purpose other than visit (e.g. for employment, study, or to take up residence in HKSAR) must apply to the Immigration Department for an appropriate visa.

11. Fa Yuen Street Market

While Ladies Market is by far the bigger and brasher of the two, Fa Yuen Street is also a brilliant introduction to consumerism, Hong Kong style.

Visitors can purchase various kinds of products made out of Jade at the Jade Market. Its product line includes jade rings, jade animals and e
ven jade statues of Buddha. Special jade souvenirs and various trinkets are an ideal piece of memory to take home with.
Top quality jade is pure green and very expensive. Most pieces have a yellow tinge but no brown or grey should be in the finished piece. The best jadeite is semi-transparent. Opaque jadeite with cloudy patches typically has less value.

18. Golden Bauhinia Square

In 1997, marks the important occasion of the return of Hong Kong, the former British colony to the People’s Republic of China, and the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR).

While the island is known for its rich ecological environment, its culture and customs, the cable car ride too is an absolute thrill in itself. Apart from giving one splendid views of the island and the Ngong Ping Village, the cable car ride would also provide mind blowing vistas of the famous statue of Giant Buddha. Owing to its profound natural beauty, Lantau Island is among the most preferred tourist places in Hong Kong.

22. Lan Kwai Fong

Hong Kong sightseeing doesn’t just include attractions for kids, families, & couples, but has something in store for the wild and wacky youngsters too. With an awesome assortment of nightclubs, pubs, & bars like the Hard Rock Cafe, Lan Kwai Fong is that glamorous and happening part of the city that comes to life at night. It is one of the best places to visit in Hong Kong for those seeking a kick-ass nightlife in this metro.

One of the most inexpensive ways to explore Hong Kong is via the Star Ferry that lets one ride between Kowloon and Central.

24. Avenue of Stars

When in Hong Kong, tourist places like the Avenue of Stars is a must visit. Located along the Victoria Harbour waterfront in Tsim Sha Tsui and established on Hong Kong’s version of the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the popular attraction featuring about 100 statues of celebrities, film stars, scriptwriters, & directors was created as a tribute to Hong Kong’s film industry. Though temporarily closed, a selection of their best exhibits is on display at the Garden of Stars, the Tsim Sha Tsui East Waterfront Podium Garden, and at the Starry Gallery, a pedestrian subway under Salisbury Road.

25. Big Buddha

The world’s second largest outdoor bronze statue– the Giant Buddha, is among the top rated tourist places in Hong Kong. In fact, the statue is so huge that you can easily spot this impressive 112 feet long figure near the Po Lin Monastery from your flight’s window seat! The Big Buddha, or Tian Tan, is also visible from the Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car, which gives an almost eye-level view of the massive statue. But in order to truly experience this sanctum’s peaceful, charismatic and enlightening influences, one should definitely climb the 268 steps leading to the statue itself!

The type of visa you need for entering Hong Kong depends on the purpose of your stay. To apply for a visa, your passport must be valid for six months or more from the date of intended entry. The most common visas are the following:

1. Visit Visa

Citizens of several countries including India are allowed to visit Hong Kong without a visa for between seven and 180 days. All Indian nationals who intend to visit Hong Kong visa-free are required to apply for Pre-arrival Registration (PAR) effective January 23, 2017, unless they qualify for one of the categories of exemption. A successful registrant is allowed to visit Hong Kong visa-free for multiple visits during the validity period of the PAR and may stay up to 14 days per each entry. Indians intending to stay for more than 14 days in Hong Kong need to apply for a Visa at the Hong Kong Immigration. The application process can take up to four weeks, but the time depends on the Immigration department and how busy they are. You may be able to ask, but the best thing to do is leave more than enough time before your trip to get the visa. Note that once you travel to Hong Kong on a visitor’s visa you are not permitted to change to an employment visa without leaving and re-entering first (irrespective of your nationality).

2. Work Visa for Hong Kong

To get an employment visa you must have a job in a sponsoring company that is willing to employ you and carry out the application process for your permit. The sponsoring company has to prove that you have the necessary skills for the job and that a local worker could not fill the position. When granting work visas, the Immigration Department considers the applicant’s education, job experience and other factors.
The application for your work visa is not submitted by you, but by your future employer. The company has to submit a confirmed offer of employment, and proof that the remuneration package includes salary, accommodation, medical and educational provisions, as well as other benefits appropriate for professionals in Hong Kong. The application process takes four to six weeks, after which the entry visa is issued to your employer, who should forward it to you. Once you get your visa, you can apply for residency for your spouse and children as well.
Work visas are normally granted for the duration of your employment contract. However, they are not generally for duration of more than 2 years. If the company wants to employ you for longer, towards the end of your visa period it has to apply for a renewal, which is quite straightforward.
A Hong Kong employment visa is not transferable from one company to another. If you resign or are fired, you will need to apply for another visa and restart the process. Your sponsoring employer is obliged to notify the Immigration Department if you leave. Intra-company transfers are possible for employees who have worked for over 12 months in an overseas office.
If you want to do extra work outside the scope of your existing visa, you should apply for permission to do this additional employment. In order to do so, you need to submit your visa application form from the Immigration Department, together with your ID card, passport, a description of the work you have been contracted to do and a letter from your current work visa sponsor giving permission for you to take up the work.

3. Investment Visa

Investment visas are issued to self-employed people in Hong Kong. In order to apply for an investment visa, you will need to complete a large amount of paperwork detailing your educational background, professional experience, the proposed business activities, capital and details of the activity and the jobs it will create. Detailed information is available on the Immigration Department’s website www.immd.gov.hk and at www.investhk.gov.hk.

4. Dependant Visa

If you have a work or business visa you can sponsor residency visa applications for your spouse and children below the age of 18. Bear in mind that if you lose your employment status, they also lose their visa rights. As a Hong Kong permanent resident you can also sponsor your parents if they are aged 60 or above.
To apply for a dependant visa you will need to present the passports and birth certificates of your family and a marriage certificate (if applicable). The Immigration Department will also require proof you can support your family and that the sponsored family members have no criminal record. Dependant spouses of foreign workers with a work visa are permitted to take up employment.

5. Student Visa

Student visas are handled very much like work visas. To get a student visa, your sponsoring educational institution will need to apply for the visa on your behalf.

6. Permanent Residency

Permanent residence status may be granted to people who have lived continuously in Hong Kong for seven years. In addition, you need to fulfil certain requirements. If you have permanent residency status you can live in Hong Kong and work at any company without a visa. If you later leave Hong Kong for longer than 3 years you lose permanent residency status.

7. Other Types of Visas

a. Domestic Help Visa: Domestic help visas are valid for a two-year domestic work contract. Domestic helpers must live in their employer's home. They cannot become permanent residents.

b. Training Visa: Valid for up to one month, for people who cannot get similar training in their own country.

c. Working Holiday Scheme:This scheme applies to nationals of certain countries. It is based on a quota system so a limited number of visas are granted per year. This type of visa is valid for 12 months and an individual can only receive this visa onc
