Hong Kong Jobs - Working in Hong Kong
Hong Kong is well positioned to benefit from the rapid growth in the immense Mainland Chinese market. China's entry to the World Trade Organisation and the growth in the consumer sector has set the stage for even greater economic expansion. Hong Kong has a prime location at the geographical and economic centre of Asia. Business executives have fast and easy access to all the major markets in the Asia Pacific region. This central position is one of the key reasons for the city's popularity as a location for regional operations.
To work in Hong Kong, you will need to be sponsored by an employer, unless you are already a citizen. To be eligible for citizenship you will have been born in Hong Kong or one of your parents is the holder of a permanent Hong Kong ID card.
The process for a contractor/temporary person is the same as someone seeking a permit for a permanent position and must be initiated in Hong Kong so you will need to plan trips here for interviews. If you are interested in moving to Hong Kong, Cantonese or Mandarin language skills will be an advantage.
It is always best to contact the embassy of the country you are hoping to work in to get the full picture. More detailed information on visas for Hong Kong can be found at the Hong Kong Immigration Department.
