Taiwan Residents

Applying through HKU CEDARS  

Step 1

As the HKSAR government does not recognize the Taiwan passport, you cannot enter Hong Kong with your Taiwan passport. Once you have received your offer of admission (including the conditional offer letter), you may submit your visa application set to CEDARS by email. CEDARS will check the documents for you. CEDARS will send an acknowledgement email to you as soon as possible.

Step 2

If your visa document set is complete, CEDARS will ask you to send documents by post/courier to CEDARS at 3/F Meng Wah Complex, The University of Hong Kong, Pokfulam Road, Hong Kong.

Step 3

Once your visa documents have reached the CEDARS office, we will send an acknowledgement email to you as soon as possible and will forward your student visa application documents to the Hong Kong Immigration Department (HKID) for further processing. HKID normally takes 8 - 10 weeks of processing time.

Step 4

If HKID approves your visa application, CEDARS will pick up the Entry Permit (入境許可證) and send it to you by courier. CEDARS will confirm the delivery address with you before arranging for a courier service.
