The Admission of Mainland Talents & Professionals Scheme can be used in a number of creative ways to facilitate the entry of suitably qualified mainland residents to take up employment in Hong Kong.

In spite of the general perception that it is hard for Chinese nationals to secure an employment visa in Hong Kong moving here directly from the Mainland.

For example, it can be used by local companies headhunting Mainland talent for specific employment position.

It can also be used by a Mainland business owner who is seeking to transfer him or herself to their self owned Hong Kong business.

Additionally,  the Scheme is suitable for a business executive presently working in China for an Mainland employer wishing to establish new operations in the HKSAR.

Last, but by no means least, the AMTP programme is ideally suited to a Chinese national inter-company transferee who works for a substantial Hong Kong, Mainland or Multinational Enterprise with operations in both Hong Kong and in China proper.

The Admission of Mainland Talents & Professionals Scheme is an extremely flexible category of employment visa and, so long as the cases are argued properly, a wide variety of scenarios can expect to get approved.
