What Do the Immigration Department Look For When Establishing the Bones Fides of a Hong Kong Employer As a Suitable & Credible Sponsor Under the Immigration Arrangements for Non-local Graduates?

Posted in Employment Visas, The Hong Kong Visa Geeza, Your Question Answered /


Can any old entity successfully sponsor an employment visa extension under the Immigration Arrangements for Non-local Graduates?


I am currently in Hong Kong on IANG Visa.

My company would need to help me to sponsor the IANG visa once my limit of stay is within 4 weeks of expiry.

I do understand that the remuneration for the job needs to be at the market level and the job should be commonly taken up by the graduates.

What I would like to know is that is there any minimum standard regarding the size, revenue and/or profit that the company must satisfy in order to sponsor the IANG visa.

In other words is there any minimum standard for the financial standing of the company for it to be eligible to sponsor the IANG Visa?
