Immigration Department to Implement Enhancements to Talent Admission Arrangements
By Patrick Lee on 28 April 2015

Background

The Immigration Department announced today (April 28) that the pilot Admission Scheme for the Second Generation of Chinese Hong Kong Permanent Residents and other enhancements to the admission arrangements for talent, professionals and entrepreneurs will be implemented on May 4.

About the new arrangements

Specifically, stay arrangements under various talent admission schemes (i.e. the General Employment Policy, the Admission Scheme for Mainland Talents and Professionals and the Quality Migrant Admission Scheme (QMAS)) will be relaxed; the point-scoring scheme under the QMAS will be adjusted to attract talent with excellent educational background or international work experience; and the admission arrangement for entrepreneurs including start-up entrepreneurs will be set out clearly.

Detailed information on the enhanced talent admission arrangements is available at the website of Immigration Department at:
