DATE FOR YOUR DIARY: How to Apply for a Hong Kong Investment Visa Without Any Professional Help – Public Talk by Stephen Barnes on January 17, 2013

January 1st, 2013

Posted in Investment Visas, Musing, The Hong Kong Visa Geeza /


In the wake of a presentation I gave on November 26 last year, I have been invited by Josephine Lau @ Centre O to once again talk about the challenges faced by foreign national entrepreneurs in securing the necessary immigration permissions to join in or establish businesses here in Hong Kong.

This is a free session (i.e. no $$ required) and a great opportunity to network with like-minded souls setting out on their own in doing business in the HKSAR.

The cut and thrust of my presentation will be on how to go about applying for – and getting approved – a Hong Kong investment visa without the need to engage any professional help.

That’s right – how to get an investment visa, for free!

My presentation is only 17 minutes long, but the session is designed to be ongoing Q&A interactive in a very cosy atmosphere so expect to be engaged for about 90 minutes, eating drinking and networking with no more than 20 others.

Consequently, the session has very limited spots so please RSVP to Josephine ASAP and reserve your place.

I’m going to be on hand to answer any questions you have about your own visa situations, and will stick around after the session for as long as it takes to talk to you all.

Josephine provides an excellent service at Centre O (we are a client too) and goes out of her way to take care of her customers and guests.

There’ll be lots of wine on hand for the session, some great food and an excellent, convivial atmosphere.

While you’re there you can also check out her excellent facilities too.

In the meantime, have a look at our 10 Must Have Hong Kong Investment Visa Resources, attend the talk, then pick my brains for all they’re worth!

See you on the 17th!
