All submitted applications will be evaluated by the Immigration Department of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR). The validity period of an approved Visa is usually for one year, which may be extended/renewed.

Once the application has been approved, we, as the applicant's authorised immigration consultant, will collect the approved visa from the Immigration Department on behalf of the applicant.
