The Hong Kong entrepreneur visa is a programme for foreign investors who intend to open businesses in Hong Kong. Essentially, it is a form of work permit given to the business owner who is considered an employee of his business.
Authorities will carefully scrutinize your business plan to ensure that it has enough potential to contribute to Hong Kong’s economy. Your business should be able to meet the start-up requirements and cater for all expenses over a period of 20-24 months. The visa is renewable for two years and the entrepreneur can even apply for permanent residence after 7 years.
