The Quality Migrant Admission Scheme (QMAS) is a quota-based entrant scheme. The QMAS seeks to attract highly skilled or talented persons globally to settle in Hong Kong in order to enhance Hong Kong’s international competitiveness. At present, the annual quota of the QMAS is 4 000. Successful applicants are not required to have secured an offer of local employment before their entry to Hong Kong and may bring their dependants to the city for settlement.
Eligible applicants who meet the requirements of the Talent List may enjoy immigration facilitation under the QMAS (i.e. to be awarded 30 bonus points under the General Points Test) after assessment. Individual applicants need to submit necessary documentary proofs of the qualification and experience requirements for the respective profession under the Talent List.
