Request for Visa Sponsorship & Student’s Agreement
1. Persons who do not have the right of abode or right to land and wish to enter Hong Kong for the purpose of education are required by law to obtain a valid student visa/entry permit issued by the Hong Kong Immigration Department before coming to Hong Kong.
2. A person who entered Hong Kong as a “Visitor” is not allowed to enrol as a student. Do not seek to enter Hong Kong as a “Visitor” if you plan to study in Hong Kong.
3. It is the student’s responsibility to understand and comply with the immigration and visa regulations. City University of Hong Kong (“the University”) will assist non-local students with their student visa/entry permit applications and act as their local sponsor if immigration requirements for studying in Hong Kong are met. However, it is the student and not the University or any employee or other representative of the University who is ultimately responsible for abiding by the immigration and visa regulations.
4. According to the Hong Kong immigration policy on education, non-local students are required to take up full-time study in Hong Kong. Only a restricted number of taught postgraduate programmes may admit non-local students on a part-time basis.
5. It is crucial for you to provide in your student visa/entry permit application copies of financial statements indicating that you have enough funds to support your study and living in Hong Kong. The amount of funds you need depends on the tuition fee of the programme or courses you are admitted to, the cost of accommodation and living expenses.
6. If you need the University to act as your local sponsor, please complete and return this “Request for Visa Sponsorship & Student’s Agreement” form, together with a complete and full set of form ID995A (in black or blue ink), supporting documents, and the administrative fee for visa application to the Global Services Office, Room 3210, 3/F, Cheng Yick-chi Building, City University of Hong Kong, Tat Chee Avenue, Kowloon, Hong Kong SAR. Please note that it could take up to six weeks for the Hong Kong Immigration Department to process your application. To avoid delay, please send in your application as early as possible.
