Hong Kong Investment Immigration - Conpak CPA

Hong Kong Investment Immigration


Hong Kong Chief Executive C.Y. Leung announced the suspension of the Capital Investment Entrant Scheme (CIES) in his 2015 Policy Address on 14 January 2015. Therefore, Conpak is suspending our Hong Kong investment immigration services. Please feel free to contact us for the latest policies on Hong Kong investment immigration.

In order to attract foreign funds and enhance the competitiveness of Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Government introduced the “Capital Investment Entrant Scheme” in 2003, allowing any person investing in Hong Kong and his/her dependants to obtain Hong Kong permanent residence subject to certain conditions. There is no restriction on the maximum number of applicants each year. Investors may select their own investment(s) from various investment asset classes with no need to establish or jointly run business in Hong Kong.
