The CGI in HKSAR recently shared an advisory on X (formerly known as Twitter) for Indian nationals planning to visit. It said that Indian nationals are required to apply for a PAR. The PAR is valid for six months and can be used for multiple entries.

It is important to note that the details in the PAR must match the visitor’s passport exactly. Furthermore, it is imperative that the passenger carries a physical copy of the successful PAR on an A4-sized white sheet of paper.

You can apply for the PAR from the official website of the immigration department of Hong Kong. It is also important to note that merely a successful PAR is not sufficient to qualify for entry into the region. Other important documents need to be carried as well.
