Indians Need to Apply Online Pre-Arrival Registration Before Departure
Due to sharp rise in Asylum seekers from India Hong Kong government decided to implement “Pre-arrival Registration “before a visitor enter Hong Kong effective 23rd January 2017.  Now the visitor will have to complete online application Pre-arrival registration to avail 14-day visa-free visit.

This does not affect airport transit travellers, unless they want to leave the airport transit area.

Exemptions are given for Diplomat passport holders or official passport holders, and Indian Nationals who have successfully enrolled as frequent visitors through e-channel service.  

This measure was taken by the Hong Kong government as there is a steep rise in the Asylum seekers from Indian visitors and also to stop illegal immigrants. Out of 10,450 pending Asylum claimants 20% are from India. Genuine travellers are suffering due to asylum seeker. These  persons travel to Hong Kong with an intention of seeking Asylum. There are also agents who give assistance and also arrange employment during the process.

Indian Businessmen and some political parties are opposing this pre-registration plan.
