Hong Kong Top Talent Pass Scheme Details Released

ImmD finally released information about the Top Talent Pass Scheme (“TTPS”) yesterday.

It’s proving to be quite a hit already! We have 2 applications ongoing at this time.

I will release video shortly but in the meantime details can be had from the Hong Kong Immigration Department website here:

Eligibility Nutshell From ImmD

Persons who wish to apply to enter the HKSAR under the TTPS are not required to have secured an offer of employment in the HKSAR upon application. They may be granted 24 months’ stay on time limitation only without other conditions of stay provided that normal immigration requirements are met. Applicants may choose to apply for the TTPS under one of the categories as listed in paragraphs (a) to (c) below:

  1. Persons with annual income reaching HK$2.5 million or above, or its equivalent in foreign currency, in the year immediately preceding the date of application (Category A);
  2. Degree graduates of the world’s top 100 universities with at least three years of work experience over the past five years immediately preceding the date of application (Category B); or
  3. Degree graduates of the world’s top 100 universities in the past five years immediately preceding the date of application with less than three years of work experience, subject to an annual quota which is to be allotted on a first-come, first-served basis (Category C); however, Category C does not apply to those non-local students who have obtained the undergraduate qualification in a full-time and locally-accredited programme in the HKSAR.
