Talent entry schemes to be adjusted

February 26, 2023

The Immigration Department today announced that apart from the Top Talent Pass Scheme (TTPS), applicants for other talent admission schemes will also be required to declare whether they have any criminal convictions during the application process starting tomorrow.


The schemes include the General Employment Policy, Admission Scheme for Mainland Talents & Professionals, Technology Talent Admission Scheme, Immigration Arrangements for Non-local Graduates as well as Admission Scheme for the Second Generation of Chinese Hong Kong Permanent Residents. But the application procedure for the entry of foreign domestic helpers will not be changed.


The department said it has all along been assessing each application for visa/entry permits in a rigorous manner, adding that it will adjust from time to time the application procedures and information required.


The adjustment to the application procedures of the TTPS took effect on February 22.
