The information on visa-free access or visa-on-arrival and duration of stay will generally be updated upon receipt of written notification from the receiving country/territory, and is intended for general reference only. Due to the time required for exchange of correspondences, HKSAR passport holders are advised to check with the relevant local consulate or officially recognised representatives or the nearest embassy or consular post of the country/territory concerned for accurate and up-to-date information before visiting the country/territory. The decision to approve or refuse a passenger's leave to enter a country/territory and the duration of stay given are usually determined on individual merits by the immigration authorities on arrival.
