IMMD Pre-arrival Registration for Indian Nationals
This webpage provides information to nationals of the Republic of India (Indian nationals) who wish to apply for pre-arrival registration through the online “Pre-arrival Registration for Indian Nationals” (the online service) to visit the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR).

Indian nationals must apply for and successfully complete pre-arrival registration online before they can visit or transit the HKSAR visa-free (if seeking to enter the HKSAR during transit).
Pre-arrival registration is not required for Indian nationals in direct transit by air and not leaving the airport transit area.
An Indian national can make use of the online service to apply for pre-arrival registration free of charge if he/she :
(a) holds an Indian passport valid for at least six months; and
(b) intends to visit or transit (except in direct transit by air and not leaving the airport transit area) the HKSAR for a stay not exceeding 14 days.
Pre-arrival registration is not applicable to Indian nationals who have the right of abode or the right to land in the HKSAR, are on unconditional stay in the HKSAR or have a valid permission to remain in the HKSAR for employment, study or residence.
The registrant should visit the designated GovHK website for pre-arrival registration. The registrant must truthfully enter the correct information. The information the registrant provides in the pre-arrival registration needs to be exactly the same as it appears in his/her Indian passport.
After inputting the required information, the computer system will process the registration automatically. The registration result will be made known to the registrant instantly.
The successful registrant must print the “Notification Slip for Pre-arrival Registration for Indian Nationals” (the notification slip) generated by the computer system on a sheet of blank A4 white paper.
Validity of Registration
A pre-arrival registration is normally valid for a six month period or until the expiry date of the Indian passport linked to it, whichever is earlier.
Subject to meeting normal immigration requirements, a registrant may, during the validity of the pre-arrival registration, use a valid notification slip together with the specific and valid Indian passport linked to the successful pre-arrival registration to make multiple visits to the HKSAR visa-free.
On each visit, a registrant may stay in the HKSAR for up to 14 days. The registrant will be allowed to make a new registration only when the current registration has expired.
The registrant may check the validity of the registration through the “Pre-arrival Registration Validity Enquiry” function of the online service.
In case the notification slip is lost, defaced, damaged or not printed on a sheet of blank A4 white paper, the registrant is required to reprint the notification slip through the ”View/Print Registration Notification Slip” function of the online service on his/her own.
