New visa rules for Eswatini set

January 23, 2024

From January 30, nationals of the Kingdom of Eswatini, including those who remain on the airside in transit, will require a visa to enter Hong Kong for all purposes, the Immigration Department announced today.


At present, nationals of the Kingdom of Eswatini may visit Hong Kong visa-free for a stay of up to 90 days.


The department said Hong Kong’s visa policy is subject to constant review, and changes will be introduced if circumstances so warrant, with a view to ensuring a proper balance between facilitating the entry of genuine visitors and safeguarding the integrity of immigration control.


Apart from pointing out that Hong Kong Special Administrative Region passport holders currently require a visa to visit the Kingdom of Eswatini, the department reminded such passport holders to keep abreast of the latest visa regulations before visiting the country in Southern Africa.
