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:

  • Suspend the annual quota for a period of two years with effect from 1 January 2023
  • Improve the approval process to attract more world-class talents to relocate to Hong Kong
  • Relaxing the pattern of limit of stay for GPT entrants from “2+3+3” years to “3+3+2” years
  • Bonus points for work experience in multi-national companies (MNCs) or reputable enterprises under GPT
