The following documents and materials are required for applications:
1. Valid passport of the applicant.
2. Completed application forms ID 1003A.
3. Invitation from relevant departments of Hong Kong Government or from Hong-Kong-based international organizations; Or photocopy of stamps of entry and exit of Hong Kong within the last 6 months; Or valid visa of USA, UK, Schengen States or other developed countries.
4. Return air ticket for Hong Kong and its photocopy.
5. Hong Kong hotel voucher of room reservation.
6. Income certificate or bank statement of the applicant.

Each application is considered on its own merits. The processing time normally takes about 4-6 weeks or more due to Hong Kong Immigration's approval. However it varies from case to case and depends on the sufficiency and expedition of the supporting documents provided. Mention of a Hong Kong reference (if any) will assist in conducting enquiries and avoid unnecessary delay.
