Is There Such a Thing as an ‘Occupations in Demand’ List for a Hong Kong QMAS Application?

The Quality Migrant Admission Scheme is very often compared with other immigration programmes in the quality of life jurisdictions such as Canada, Australia, New Zealand, USA and the UK. One essential difference, however, is that there is no such thing as an Occupations in Demand list (where visa availability is directly tied to the specific occupation of the applicant). Instead, the Hong Kong Immigration Department ask you to nominate which sector of the economy you believe you would make the best contribution to as a quality migrant and after that it’s just the luck of the draw!
“I am from India and have done a BA and an MBA (Sales & Marketing). Currently I am working as Sales Manager in a telecommunication company. I just wanted to confirm if my profession is eligible under the QMAS points scheme for Hong Kong.”
