  • Looking at the Capital Investment Entrant Scheme and it’s bare essence, effectively if you invest 10 million Hong Kong dollars hard cash into Hong Kong, you can secure residency permissions assuming that there is no security objection. So, 10 million Hong dollars will get you into the game. You have to put your 10 million dollars into qualifying Hong Kong investment assets which we will look at in subsequent slide. On that basis, you will be able to secure a two-year period of stay which is thereafter extendable every two years for seven years; and then after you hit the seven-year mark, if you have continuously resided in Hong Kong for all of that time and that you are able to declare that you have taken Hong Kong as your only place of residence, then you will be able to make an application for the right of abode which is permanent residency or, as of right, if you have held this immigration status for seven years irrespective of the fact that you have not had continuous residency in Hong Kong for all of that time, the idea that you have kept your assets in Hong Kong for the 7 years should then grant you the immigration privilege of unconditional stay and therefore allowing you to release the 10 million Hong Kong dollars of your assets and you can use it elsewhere whilst continuing your residence status in HKSAR.

It represents a complete misunderstanding of how our balance of payments system works. Foreigners who come here do not bring Hong Kong dollars. They do not have them at home. They bring their own currencies and we then exchange them for Hong Kong dollars. This results in our holding their foreign currency denominated money, which we then spend or invest in their countries…<br />… Net gain to us?<br />… Nothing. ”<br />
