Hong Kong is experiencing a rapid growth in the number of people seeking to emigrate. Changes to the political landscape are causing many among the population to look overseas. The United States is of particular interest and we are seeing an increasing number of people enlist the services of Davies & Associates, not only for securing their visas, but also for providing corporate legal support and tax advice as they begin their new endeavours.

United States Visa Options for Hong Kong Nationals and Residents

EB-5 Visa for Citizens of Hong Kong

Hong Kong is subject to a separate EB-5 quota to the rest of China, which means Hong Kong citizens do not face the same multi-year waiting list. Eligibility for EB-5 is determined by the country or jurisdiction of a person’s birth. The EB-5 Immigrant Investor Visa Program offers permanent residency (a Green Card) in return for a $900,000 investment in the United States. D&A has successfully helped hundreds of clients move to America.

UK Options for Hong Kong Residents

Given the historic and special relationship between Hong Kong and the United Kingdom the UK has made special immigration options available for Hong Kong residents.
One of these options gives British Nationals (overseas) the possibility of obtaining a British Nationals (overseas) visa, or “BNO” visa, to relocate to the United Kingdom.
D&A’s London office are familiar with the BNO visa and other UK immigration options for Hong Kong residents and work with our team in Kowloon to assist our clients in Hong Kong.

Some of our Hong Kong clients want a quick, effective route to another passport. We are able to support our clients whichever Citizenship or Residency program they choose. For those clients who have not chosen, we often recommend the Grenada Citizenship by Investment Programme. This is a fast, cost-effective program that offers a strong passport and access to the USA under the E-2 Visa program.

Client Reviews
Mark is one of the best things happened to me in immigration. I was very skeptical as my last attempt to obtain an L1A was a negative one through another lawyer. Mark came in and… [made] sure that the case [was refiled] successfully. Rest assured, I can vouch for his services and will recommend him highly.
