The Quality Migrant Admission Scheme (QMAS) is a quota-based entrant scheme, which seeks to attract highly skilled or talented persons to settle in Hong Kong in order to enhance Hong Kong’s economic competitiveness. Applicants must meet the prerequisites and obtain points either under the General Points Test or Achievement-based Points Test, to compete with other applicants without having an advance local employment offer. Successful applicants may apply for accompanying dependent visas for both their partner and children but are required to pay for their accompanying relative's accommodation and board and lodging in Hong Kong.

An Approved Visa Under the QMAS
The application process normally takes 6-18 months from the date of submission to the Immigration Department of HKSAR.
Applicants who are allotted a quota in the selection exercise will be issued with an Approval-in-Principle Letter, which allows the applicants to enter Hong Kong on a visitor visa so that he/she can personally attend an interview and present originals of all documents submitted during the application.
Once the Immigration Department confirmed that all statements made or information provided during the
application are true and complete, the applicants will be granted formal approval.
Furthermore, if the visa applicant is a resident of Mainland China (including those who are currently residing in Hong Kong or Macau on a temporary basis), the applicant should proceed to obtain an Exit-entry Permit for travelling to and from Hong Kong and Macau (EEP) and a relevant exit endorsement before coming to Hong Kong under the Scheme.
The Director of Immigration reserves all rights to approve or to reject the QMAS application.
