About Hong Kong

The Hong Kong New Capital Investment Entrant Scheme requires the following conditions:

Before submitting the application, the applicant must have a personal net asset value of not less than HK$30 million over the preceding two years; and must not have any adverse record.

The investment threshold will be raised to HK$30 million.

Investors can invest in assets such as stocks, funds, bonds, and non-residential properties (with a maximum limit of HK$10 million).

The approved investment assets include two parts:

  1. Financial assets include: stocks, debt securities, deposit certificates, deferred debt instruments, joint collective investment schemes, limited partnership funds, or non-residential real estate (with a maximum of HK$10 million), involving an investment of HK$27 million.
  2. To support the development of the innovation and technology sector and other key industries, a new "Capital Investment Entrant Scheme Investment Portfolio" has been established, with an investment amount of HK$3 million.

Applicants must be foreign nationals over 18 years of age, Chinese nationals with foreign permanent resident status, Macau residents, and Taiwanese residents of Chinese descent. Applicants can bring dependents to Hong Kong, including spouses and unmarried dependent children under the age of 18.

Upon successful visa application, the initial approval is for two years, followed by renewals of three years each, in a '2+3+3' pattern. After residing for not less than seven years, applicants can apply for permanent residency, after which they are free to dispose of their assets.

Applications can be accepted as early as mid-2024, with no limit on the number of applicants. Applicants will also benefit from the arrangement of 'exemption followed by levy' for both the Buyer's Stamp Duty(BSD) and the New Residential Stamp Duty(NRSD).
