Applying For A Hong Kong Visa

Indians who wish to visit Hong Kong for less than 14 days need not avail a visa. Neither do applicants of overseas nations that enjoy visa exemption benefits need a visa to visit Hong Kong. However, applicants who wish to visit Hong Kong for a period exceeding 14 days will be required to apply for a visa. The application must be drafted directly to the Hong Kong Immigration Department. An alternate route to apply for the visa would be via the Chinese Embassy in India. It usually takes between four and six weeks for the authorities to process visa applications.
