admission scheme hong kong

Highly skilled or talented individuals# who have not yet secured a job offer in Hong Kong but are interested in settling and working in Hong Kong may apply under QMAS, which has no sector restriction.

This scheme has two points-based tests:

  • Most individuals will take the General Points Test (GPT), which assesses factors such as age, qualifications, work experience, language proficiency, and background.
  • Individuals with outstanding achievements in their fields, such as an Olympic medal or Nobel Prize, may qualify under the Achievement-based Points Test (APT).

QMAS offers several enhancement measures:

  • GPT entrants enjoy a duration-of-stay pattern of "2+3+3" years
  • Eligible top-tier entrants may enjoy an even further relaxed pattern of "2+6" years
  • APT entrants may be granted a full 8 years of stay upon entry
  • GPT entrants receive bonus points for outstanding academic background, international work experience and meeting the specifications of the respective profession under the Talent List
