How Easy (or Hard) is it For a Second Foreign National Business Partner to Get a Hong Kong Investment Visa for an Unprofitable Company?

August 15th, 2020

Posted in Investment Visas, The Hong Kong Visa Geeza, Your Question Answered /


What will the Hong Kong Immigration Department make of an application for a second partner to join in an existing business and secure a business investment visa (or) Hong Kong investment visa for an unprofitable company – easy or hard?



My business partner is moving to Hong Kong soon.

Until this point, we had no need for him to be resident in Hong Kong but soon he will  play an active role in developing the European part of our business.

Our company has not yet turned a profit so I am wondering if it would be a problem when I make him a contract and apply for his working visa as the other shareholder and director of the company?

What can you suggest?
