Hong Kong Training Visa Renewal Details


If your application for a Hong Kong training visa is successfully granted, it will enable you to pursue training in Hong Kong for up to one year. However, a Hong Kong training visa does not grant or aid any long-term employment visa for work in Hong Kong for foreigners.
