10 Must Have Resources for a Hong Kong Quality Migrant Admission Scheme Visa Application

December 27th, 2012

The Quality Migrant Admission Scheme is the jeckyll and hyde visa programme of the Hong Kong Immigration Department.

At once, it is a tremendous addition to the various visa options available to intending foreign national residents of the HKSAR and is warmly welcomed.

However (truth be known) in the final analysis it is not much more than a lottery unless you happen to be a manifestly amazing talent (Nobel Laureate? Olympiad? Virtuoso?) or possess truly unique skills which the Selection Committee believes Hong Kong needs (Professional Ice Hockey Coach? Art Therapist? Emeritus Professor of Mathematics?).

It costs nothing to apply and only HKD160 if you’re accepted so why not give it a try?

Nothing to lose, right?

True – but  be ready for a 7~12 months application consideration processing time frame, no visibility of who you’re competing against, a great deal of paper shuffling and a marginal chance of approval (just 27% according to recent stats of the Hong Kong Immigration Department), especially if you’re not from the Mainland .

However, the resources which follow will help you to take stock of the QMAS challenge and provide you with some much needed assistance on your journey to a golden quality migrant ticket.

      Sorry to say but I don’t venture opinions as to approvability under the QMAS programme as it is all a black box and honestly your guess is as good as mine!
