Hong Kong Student Visa

Even though Hong Kong is now part of China, the application process for a Hong Kong study visa is different from China. Students who wish to study in Hong Kong will need to apply for admission in Hong Kong. After the admission is confirmed the student will have to pay the fees to the institute and the institute will apply for the study visa for the student. In some cases, the student will not have to pay the fees in advance but instead will have to show proof of funding which includes bank statements. Hence, the student would not have to visit the Chinese Embassy and can travel with the e-visa. However, when the student arrives in Hong Kong, he or she would have to visit the immigration authorities to verify the documents.

Once you have understood the funding requirements of the institution you have applied to and complied with them, the application process is handled entirely in Hong Kong. However, make sure you travel with the documents that you need otherwise if immigration can’t verify them successfully you may be denied entry.

Apply for visa

Now that you have everything ready with you, you can apply for your visa application (Form ID995A). You should do this as early as allowed as visa applications can take very long to process as the documents and form need to be couriered or faxed. Your sponsor has to fill the Form ID 995B to be submitted along with your application. We will be filling out your application form and helping you navigate the process.

Success Story

Prachi Mody

Prachi Mody

The University of Hong Kong


As I was applying for the Hong Kong student visa, I realized that it was too complicated and I needed help. I had already got admission into a university so I decided to approach KGC. The KGC team was very polite and patient with me and told me what to expect from the visa process and how I should prepare for it. Without their help, I would have missed something along the way and it would not be possible for me to study here. I am glad there are people such as Karan Gupta guiding students to study in all countries around the world.

Message from Dr. Karan Gupta

Be sure to add the sticker visa label you receive to your passport. This will be important for when you reach Hong Kong and need to activate your visa. You will be issued a Landing Slip after arrival and you will need to apply for a Hong Kong Identity Card within 30 days of you reaching there.

No. The students need to submit their application along with the relevant documents to the nearest Chinese consulate in their country.

The students need to pay a HK $230 which is non-refundable.

It is recommended that you have all your financial documents like family and personal bank asset statements in place before you apply for the visa. If you don’t have the required finances, you can approach the university for scholarships or trusts which provide scholarships for students. Additionally, you can take a bank loan too. The key is to be able to prove that you have sufficient funds to fund your education and take care of your living expenses.

There could be a variety of reasons. We need to check the whole application in detail in order to provide you with the possible solution.

3 months before at least. The processing time is around 6 weeks provided all the necessary documents are submitted. Applying as soon as you receive your confirmation from the university is recommended.
