Hong Kong Dependent Visa

The Hong Kong Dependent Visa is basically a visa for relocation meant for close relatives of a foreigner, which in this case is their companion and children below the age of 18 who are still single.

The foreigner needs to have an authentic Hong Kong job, training or investment visa. Likewise, the individual needs to either be a Permanent Resident or schooling in Hong Kong.

The principal visa holder needs to file and sponsor an independent application for each relative. The dependent's duration of stay in Hong Kong largely depends on that of the sponsor. This means that the dependent visa holder can only work, live and stay in Hong Kong so long as the visa of the principle remains valid.


Based on the status of the resident principal visa holder, the dependents that can join him are the following:

1. Category A: A primary visa holder who has a Permanent Resident Status or an unconditional limit of stay, the dependents he can sponsor are:


Children(legally adopted included) who are single and are less than 18 years

parents above 60 years old

2. Category B: A principal visa holder whose Hong Kong Immigration is only limited to work as a professional, investor, student or is allowed to remain in the country as an entrant of under the QMAS Scheme. Such a principal can only sponsor the following people for the dependent visa:


Children(legally adopted included) who are single and are less than 18 years

Visa Extension

Hong Kong Dependent Visa holders whose sponsors are permanent resident status or an unconditional limit of stay can have their visas extended after 3 years. Application for extension is usually applied four weeks before the expiration of the current visa.

Employment of dependents:

Dependents of the two categories of sponsors can take employment in Hong Kong. However, if the dependent is admitted to study they are not allowed to take up any employment.

Study of dependents:

Dependent visa holders are eligible to study in Hong Kong without prior permission from the Immigration Authorities. Also, they don't require any student visa to study.
