Hong Kong to withdraw visa-free entry for Indians
Hong Kong has decided to withdraw visa-free facility for Indians. From January 23, 2017, onwards, Indian travellers will have to complete a pre-arrival registration. The move was taken on the ground that the number of Indian asylum seekers was on the rise. Over half a million Indians visit Hong Kong for business, trade and holidays. Hong Kong has been permitting Indians to enter with a valid passport for a period up to 14 days without a visa.
Hong Kong is a special administrative region of China.
