Relocation To Hong Kong From Singapore: Key Points

Hong Kong is a symphony of dynamic lifestyles, rich traditions, and spectacular modernity, offering a plethora of experiences and adventures waiting to be explored. The city’s vibrancy, eclectic culture, and culinary delights promise a life that’s anything but mundane, and it’s crucial to embrace this with an open mind and a zest for new experiences.

However, adapting to the bustling streets, the unique East-meets-West culture, and the fast-paced life of Hong Kong could be challenging but equally rewarding. The densely populated cityscapes and towering skyscrapers are a stark contrast to Singapore’s orderly urban spaces but come with their own charm and allure. 

While you navigate through the intricacies of life in Hong Kong, the city’s enchanting neighborhoods, culinary treasures, and bustling markets offer solace, excitement, and a unique flavor of local living.  It might be daunting at first, but we are here to assist you in every step, ensuring you settle in comfortably and quickly in your new home.

Entry Requirements To Hong Kong For Singaporean Citizens

Hong Kong offers a unique blend of opportunities and experiences, making it an attractive destination for many Singaporeans. 

Whether your purpose is tourism, employment or eventual settlement, understanding the entry requirements and processes for visas and permanent residency is vital. Here’s an in-depth look at what Singaporeans need to know in terms of visa entry.

Visa-Free Entry For Short Stays

Singaporeans are privileged with relatively easy access to Hong Kong for short stays:

Duration of Stay

Singaporean passport holders can enter Hong Kong without a visa for up to 90 days for tourism, business, or family visits.

Passport Validity

Ensure your passport is valid for at least one month beyond your departure date from Hong Kong.

Proof of Onward Travel

While not always asked, having a return or onward ticket is advisable.

Sufficient Funds

Be prepared to show evidence of sufficient funds to cover your stay, such as bank statements or a letter from a sponsor.

Types Of Working Visas In Hong Kong

Hong Kong offers several types of work visas, each tailored to different needs and circumstances. Here’s a brief overview:

  1. General Employment Policy (GEP): For professionals with a job offer in Hong Kong, especially those with skills not readily available in the local market. Applicants must have a confirmed job offer with a role that matches their skills and experience.

  2. Admission Scheme for Mainland Talents and Professionals (ASMTP): This is similar to the GEP but is specifically for residents of Mainland China.

  3. Immigration Arrangements for Non-local Graduates (IANG): Recent graduates of Hong Kong universities can apply to stay and work under this scheme. There’s no need for a prior job offer to apply for IANG.

  4. Technology Talent Admission Scheme (TechTAS): A fast-track arrangement for companies to admit overseas and Mainland technology talent to undertake research and development in Hong Kong.

  5. Quality Migrant Admission Scheme (QMAS): A quota-based scheme for skilled or talented individuals who wish to settle in Hong Kong but do not have a job offer yet. Applicants are assessed based on a points system considering factors like age, experience, and educational background.

Applying For A Work Visa When Moving To Hong Kong From Singapore

For employment in Hong Kong, a work visa is necessary. The process is straightforward but requires careful attention to detail:

  • Employment Offer: A confirmed job offer from a Hong Kong-based employer is essential. The job should generally be in a field where local talent is scarce.

  • Visa Application: The application is made through the Hong Kong Immigration Department. This can be done online, by post, or through a local sponsor.

  • Required Documents: Alongside the Application for Entry for Employment as Professionals in Hong Kong (ID 990A), you’ll need to submit your employment contract, a copy of your passport, proof of your professional qualifications, and evidence of work experience.

  • Processing Time: The processing time can vary but typically ranges from 4-6 weeks.

  • Validity and Renewal: Work visas are initially granted for a maximum period of 24 months and are renewable as long as you remain employed.

Eligibility For Permanent Residency

After a substantial period, permanent residency becomes an option for people who want to make Hong Kong their home. If this is ultimately your goal, you will need to consider the following.

Continuous Stay

You must have resided in Hong Kong for at least seven years under a valid visa.

Application Process

The "Right of Abode" application is made through the Immigration Department, involving form ROP145.

Supporting Documents

These include proof of continuous residence (like utility bills, rent receipts), your valid travel document, and the Permanent Hong Kong Identity Card, if applicable.

Rights as a Permanent Resident

This status grants you the right to vote, work without a visa, and access to social welfare benefits.

Eligibility Considerations

Criminal Record

A clean criminal record is generally required. Any criminal history may negatively impact your application.

Financial Stability

Evidence of your ability to support yourself without public assistance is crucial, particularly for permanent residency applications.

Health Requirements

While short visits or work visas are not mandatory, a health check might be required for certain categories of long-term visas or residency applications.

Integration into Society

For permanent residency, evidence of integration into Hong Kong society, such as language proficiency, community involvement, or local employment history, can be advantageous.

Tax Obligations For Singaporeans In Hong Kong

Understanding the tax system in Hong Kong is crucial for Singaporeans planning to work or reside there. Here are the key aspects:

Territorial Tax System: Hong Kong operates on a territorial basis of taxation. This means that only income sourced in Hong Kong is subject to tax. Income earned outside Hong Kong is generally not taxed.

Types of Taxes: The primary taxes are income tax (known as Salaries Tax), Profits Tax for businesses, and Property Tax. There is no capital gains tax, no inheritance tax, and no sales tax/VAT.

Salaries Tax: This is charged on all employment income arising in Hong Kong. The rate is progressive, ranging from 2% to 17%, or at a standard rate of 15% on net income (after allowances and deductions).

Tax Filing: If you work in Hong Kong, you must file an annual tax return. The tax year runs from April 1st to March 31st, and returns are typically due in May.

Double Taxation Agreements: Hong Kong has a limited Double Taxation Agreement (DTA) with Singapore. This agreement helps to prevent double taxation on the same income in both jurisdictions.

Housing And Living Conditions In Hong Kong

Hong Kong is known for its high cost of living, particularly housing. Here’s what you should know:

Housing Market

The housing market in Hong Kong is one of the most expensive in the world. Options range from small apartments in high-rise buildings to larger properties in the New Territories and outlying islands.

Renting

Most expatriates rent their homes. Rent varies widely based on location, size, and quality. Popular expatriate areas include Central, Mid-levels, Discovery Bay, and the New Territories.

Utilities and Amenities

Utilities like electricity, water, and gas are reliable but can be costly. Internet and mobile services are widely available and of high quality.

Public Transport

Hong Kong has an efficient and affordable public transportation system, including the MTR (subway), buses, trams, and ferries.

Healthcare

The healthcare system in Hong Kong is of a high standard. Public healthcare is heavily subsidized, but non-residents may not have the same level of access to these subsidies. Many expatriates opt for private healthcare and health insurance.

Education

There are various options for schooling, from local schools teaching in Cantonese and English to international schools. The education standard is high, but international school fees can be substantial.
