Hong Kong Skilled Worker Programmes

Hong Kong Skilled Worker

The Skilled Workers Programme is designed to bring those migrants to Hong Kong who will bring much contribution to the economy and primarily to fill positions needed. If you are a skilled worker with a prospective job offer from a recognised Hong Kong Employer / company or agency then you are to go through the General Employment Policy (or GEP) if you are a skilled worker without a job offer then the option for you is the General Points Test (or GPT).

The process for the GEP is fairly straightforward. You need to have the relevant skills, knowledge and experience to fill the position offered to you and have all the evidence for this in documented form. As well as this you will have a background check by the authorities to check that you are indeed firstly, who you say you are, that the skills you claim to have are genuine and authorised and that you have had no criminal convictions meaning you are of good character and no threat to the country.

The GPT is a point based system, very much like the one in countries like Australia and the UK. Here you eligibility for migration is determined by how many ‘points’ you acquire during the test. You need to score at least 80 points over all for your application to be considered, the tests are changed regularly so if a friend or relative passed the test and immigrated prior to you this does not guarantee you will do the same.

Criteria considered are:

  • Age - depending on your age at the time of application you will receive different points. Those over 50 will receive no points in this category whereas those aged between 18 and 39 have the highest score of 30 points, 20 points is given to those between 40 and 44 and those aged 45 to 50 are given 15 points.
  • Academic Qualifications - The highest score in this is 45 points which is given to those applicants who have more than two Doctoral degrees. Second to this is 40 points which is given to those with one Doctoral degree and or two or more masters degrees. One master degree and or two bachelors degrees will gain you 35 points and those with one bachelors degree and or one professional qualification will receive 30 points in this category.
  • Work Experience at Specialist Level - The highest number for this category is 50 points, which is allocated to those who have ten years work experience a specialist level with five of those being in a senior role. 40 points are given to those who have five years of more experience and two of those in senior role. For those with five years experience and non senior they will receive 30 points and the lowest amount of points is 10 in this category which is given to those with two or more years working experience at professional level.
  • Language -  If you have the ability to read, write and speak English, Chinese and Cantonese you will be awarded 20 points. Ten points are given to those who can read write and speak Chinese OR English.
  • Family - The most you will receive in this category is 5 points. You can get the 5 points if you have at least one family member who is a permanent resident of Hong Kong or if you have an accompanying spouse who is also at a high professional level.
