Japanese working in Hong Kong
Foreign nationals must obtain a work visa to work legally in Hong Kong. These visas allow foreigners to work and live in Hong Kong for up to one year, but they are not the only documents that foreigners need.
If you are only applying for an ordinary employment visa, it is recommended that you apply for the General Employment Policy.
Applications for admission to Hong Kong for employment under the General Employment Policy may be considered for approval if they fulfil the following criteria
1) There are no security reasons for rejecting the application and the applicant does not have any known serious criminal record;
2) the applicant has a good educational background, which normally means a bachelor’s degree in the relevant field, but in exceptional circumstances, good technical qualifications, proven professional competence and/or documented relevant experience and achievements may also be accepted;
3) There is a confirmed vacancy for the post;
4) a confirmed offer of employment in a job relevant to the applicant’s academic qualifications or working experience and which cannot be readily taken up by a local person; and
5) the remuneration package (including income, housing, medical and other fringe benefits) should be broadly comparable to the prevailing market remuneration for professionals in Hong Kong.
