Schooling the Lawyers – Quality Migrant Admission Scheme (QMAS)

Gain insights into Hong Kong’s selective immigration strategies with the Quality Migrant Admission Scheme and the Top Talent Pass, designed to attract distinguished talents to contribute to the region’s development. While the former offers a pathway without employer sponsorship based on a point system, the latter promises a streamlined process, albeit still with considerable processing times. These programs, which no longer have a quota limit, welcome top-tier professionals and talents, except for six restricted nationalities, and offer up to eight years of residence. The application involves satisfying essential criteria like financial stability, no criminal record, language proficiency, and minimum education. Successful applicants can bring dependents, with the potential for permanent residency after seven years. Discover the nuances of these talent schemes, including the points tally for the general test, achievements-based approvals, and the significance of earning $2 million for top-tier status, all aimed at enriching Hong Kong’s talent pool.
