Hong Kong

Living in Hong KongHong Kong is a lively city and a major gateway to China. Located at the south-eastern tip of the mainland, the autonomous region covers Hong Kong Island, Lantau Island, the Kowloon Peninsula and 262 outlying small islands. This subtropical area has attracted a great number of expatriates from around the globe due to its economic significance, vibrant culture and both Chinese and English being the official languages. Whether exploring the endless variety of local food outlets, bargain hunting in chaotic markets, or enjoying the city’s vibrant nightlife, the bustling city offers you a lifestyle full of adventure.

Visa and immigration

School Education Visa ImmigrationThere are no visa requirements for Australian citizens visiting Hong Kong; however, if you wish to live and work in HK, you must obtain a work permit that is subject to meeting all the conditions set out by the Immigration Department.

The Customs and Excise Department also prevents anything that would be harmful to community health and public safety and plays a large role in protecting the provincial borders.

 

Currency

Foreign-Currency-OzForexThe Hong Kong Dollar (HKD) is the 8th most traded currency in the world. This has made HK one of the world’s largest trading economies; characterised by free trade, low taxation and minimum government intervention. Over inflated accommodation prices mean the cost of living is generally high for expatriates. The affordable cost of transport, food, household items, and reliable domestic help however, make this an ideal place to live for many professional expats.

To help make your transition easier, Grace Removals has partnered with OzForex to provide you with convenient and competitive foreign exchange solutions with no fees.
