Hong Kong General Employment Policy


The General Employment Policy (the GEP) sets out the entry arrangement for persons who wish to enter/stay in the Hong Kong for employment as professionals. Applicants who possess special skills, knowledge or experience of value to and not readily available in the HKSAR may apply to come to work under the GEP, which is quota-free and non-sector specific.

there is no security objection and no known record of serious crime in respect of the applicant;

there is a genuine job vacancy;

the applicant has a confirmed offer of employment and is employed in a job relevant to his academic qualifications or work experience that cannot be readily taken up by the local work force; and

the remuneration package including income, accommodation, medical and other fringe benefits is broadly commensurate with the prevailing market level for professionals in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR).
