Hong Kong immigration services? After almost 20 years of providing immigration advice and assistance in Hong Kong, I am in the uniquely fortunate position to really understand how the market works – and the choices that clients have when looking for professional assistance.

My time working at the highest levels in the ‘International 2’, who together provide the overwhelming majority of services to corporate clients in Hong Kong, has also armed me with significant insight not otherwise readily found within the cadre of immigration practitioners in the HKSAR.

Consequently, I have been able to craft this infographic which, I hope, will shed some light for you on the visa and immigration service options in Hong Kong and how they fare generally.

Please note, I have tried to be as objective as I can in presenting this information and have deliberately kept my own firm (the Hong Kong Visa Centre) out of the classifications.

As a business with an entirely novel internet service delivery model, we simply don’t fit into any of the typical moulds but if you wish to learn more about my firm please watch Part Three of My Story.

Of course, as in every aspect of life and commerce, not all immigration service providers are born equal, with some manifestly superior to others and some offering specialisations unique to their particular skill sets.

In the final analysis its up to you to do your homework, have some meetings, shake some hands and find a provider that’s perfect for your needs, budget, problem or particular case challenge.

For, as the saying goes, you pay your money and you take your choice!
