29th November 2022 – (Hong Kong)  The Immigration Department (ImmD) announced today that with immediate effect, electronic services for visa application have been extended to all visa application types including visas/entry permits for visits, employment, investment, training, residence and study.
Electronic Services for Visa Application allows applicants to complete the entire process of application submission, payment and collection of visa/entry permits through the ImmD mobile application, the ImmD’s website or the GovHK website, without having to visit an Immigration Office in person, thereby reducing crowd gatherings and protecting public health.
