On January 17, 2013 I gave a talk at Centre O in Wanchai on how to go about applying for a Hong Kong business investment visa without the need to pay for any professional help. 10 years have gone by and much water has travelled under the bridge since then. Thankfully, the criteria for approval for this visa type hasn’t changed, although the startup visa is ‘new’ to the scene and worth a look at. This material is still valid although over the coming few weeks I will be doing a series of planned public talks to put a fresh lick of paint on them and posting new videos to this end. Keep your eye open for them!

The 30 minute talk was broken down into 24 very easy to digest segments and each of these segments is presented here.

The talk is designed to allow the D-I-Y visa applicant to use the 100% free resources of both the Hong Kong Visa Handbook as well as the Hong Kong Visa Geeza Blog.

Please see:

10 Must Have Resources for Any Hong Kong Investment Visa Application


The Hong Kong Visa Handbook

The videos will be added incrementally over the course of the next 2-3 weeks until the entire talk has been presented.
