When a foreign professional is capable to make substantial contribution to Hong Kong’s economy, this foreign person may be favourably considered a candidate for the investment/entrepreneur visa. The actual potential contribution can be evaluated through a business plan, business turnover, financial resources, investment sum, number of jobs created locally for HK residents, and the introduction of new technology or skills.
Business Plan: An applicant who is to join in business or establish a new business in Hong Kong must submit a two-year business plan. In the business plan, it should inform the nature of the business, market analysis, market positioning, business direction, sales targets, product marketing strategy, or more.
The applicant must also submit a two-year forecast of the profit-and-loss account statement, cash flow statement and balance sheet. This information is to demonstrate that the business is suitable for and capable of developing in Hong Kong.
Because of the applicant’s business plan, the Hong Kong Immigration Department may use advice other HK government departments and/or consultants/professionals. This is to assess if the business to be set up will in fact support Hong Kong’s overall economic development.
The HK Immigration Department may consider whether the applicant’s business belongs to or is able to complement industries that Hong Kong usually gets considerable advantages. These industries include the four traditional pillar industries i.e. trading and logistics, tourism, financial services, and professional and producer services. The industries may also be the four clusters of sectors i.e. transportation, convention and exhibition industries and tourism, manufacturing industries, innovative technology and cultural and creative industries, and professional services.
