Important Notice: New visa arrangement for Indian nations to enter Hong Kong

Effective from January 23, 2017, Indian nationals must apply for and successfully complete online pre-arrival registration before they can continue to enjoy the current 14-day visa-free visit or enter Hong Kong during transit.

In case the pre-arrival registration cannot be completed, an Indian national must apply for an entry visa to the Immigration Department if he/she intends to visit the HKSAR. Such applications must be submitted directly to the Immigration Department. Chinese diplomatic and consular missions will not accept visit visa applications from Indian nationals.

For details information, please read: Pre-arrival Registration for Indian Nationals

Prepare supporting documents [if necessary]

To assist your visa application, the Organisers can issue you an official invitation letter. You can apply the invitation letter through the pre-registration form or you can also send your request to info@aplf.com at least two months before the Fair begins. After receiving and verifying the requested documents, we will send you the invitation letter by email. It will normally take four to six weeks for the Immigration Department to process a visit/transit visa/entry permit application upon receipt of all the required documents. Please note the issuance of a visa is at the discretion of the Hong Kong Immigration Department.
