Travelling to Hong Kong


Nationals of more than 170 countries and territories can come for short visits visa-free. If a visitor wants to stay longer than the visa-free period allowed (ranging from 7 days 6 months), he must apply for a visa before travelling to Hong Kong at either the nearest Chinese diplomatic and consular mission or by mail or through a local sponsor to the HKSAR Immigration Department under the "Direct Visa Application Scheme".

In the UK, Denmark, Finland and Sweden, visas (except for applicants requiring diplomatic, service or courtesy visas) should be obtained through the local Chinese Visa Application Center. Please visit to find your nearest centre.
