Schooling the Lawyers – Capital Investment Entrant Scheme (CIES)

Get insights into the anticipated revival of Hong Kong’s Capital Investment Entrance Scheme, initially mirrored from its previous version, with the updated investment threshold set at 30 million HKD. Real estate investments are excluded, with details on qualifying classes still pending. This scheme historically favored mainland Chinese applicants and offered residency permissions through significant cash investment in Hong Kong. It included a biennial assessment to maintain investment assets for visa extensions, leading to potential permanent residency or unconditional stay after seven years, provided the applicant has been ordinarily resident. Dependent visas are available for legal spouses and underage children. The presentation will delve into the asset classes, investment maintenance, and the endgame of achieving right of abode or unconditional stay, emphasizing the need for additional resources beyond the investment quantum to support the applicant’s stay in Hong Kong.
