Build Your Career Profile in Hong Kong

Hong Kong’s appeal is threefold: it is a dynamic city with strong growth prospects; it is a gateway to opportunities in Mainland China; and it is a regional hub for expansion across Asia.

  1. Immigration Arrangements for Non-local Graduates: IANG Scheme

    HKSAR government develops new manpower policy, because of low unemployment rate and insufficient manpower in Hong Kong. According to the Immigration Guidelines for Entry to the Hong Kong SAR

    "Non-local graduates who submit applications to the Immigration Department within six months after the date of their graduation (i.e. the date shown on their graduation certificates) are classified as non-local fresh graduates. Non-local fresh graduates who wish to apply to stay and work in the HKSAR are not required to have secured an offer of employment upon application.

    Successful applicants under the IANG may be granted a 12 months' stay on time limitation only without other conditions of stay provided that normal immigration requirements are met, regardless of the term of employment."
