The Government has launched the Pilot Scheme on Immigration Facilitation for Visitors Participating in Short-term Activities in Designated Sectors (the “Pilot Scheme”) on 1 June 2022.  

This Pilot Scheme is launched in addition and on top of the existing scheme to enhance Hong Kong’s competitiveness and raise Hong Kong's international profile. All UGC-funded universities are authorised host organisations under the Pilot Scheme.
