Hong Kong Immigration Lawyer

Immigration Services is a division of the Private Clients Department at ONC Lawyers.

A major part of ONC Lawyers' immigration services is advising and assisting clients in their application under the Capital Investment Entrant Scheme (“CIES”), a scheme introduced by the Hong Kong SAR Government to provide individuals and their family members the opportunity to acquire right of residency in Hong Kong through permissible investments in Hong Kong.

This scheme is gaining more and more popularity among wealthy individuals from Mainland China, who wish to obtain Hong Kong resident status that gives them more flexibility for staying in Hong Kong and managing their funds in global investments.

This scheme applies to foreign nationals (except nationals of Afghanistan, Albania, Cuba, and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea), Macau SAR residents, Taiwan residents and Chinese nationals. In the case of Chinese applicants however, they are required to first obtain permanent resident status in a foreign country. For applicants who do not already have one, a Hong Kong immigration lawyer can assist them in obtaining such status, for example, permanent resident status of Gambia (a small nation on the west coast of Africa).
