Hong Kong Visas For 2 Week Visitor Nationals – The Study-then-Work Visa

January 23rd, 2017

Posted in Employment Visas, Musing, Special Programmes, The Hong Kong Visa Geeza /


On May 30, 2016 I gave a talk at the Russian Club Hong Kong on the types of Hong Kong visas available to those nationalities who are only granted a 2 week limit of stay as visitors upon arrival in the HKSAR.

This ‘2 week rule’ has a very real practical effect on citizens of countries affected and so this talk is designed is speak to nationals of such countries.

This 6th part of the talk discusses the Immigration Arrangements for Non-local Graduates.
