Online Application for Extension of Stay (for Persons Admitted under Sector-specific Labour Importation Schemes to Complete Remaining Period of Current Contract)

Who Can Use This Service

If you are a person admitted as an imported labour for employment in Hong Kong and have been granted with a limit of stay shorter than the duration of the employment contract upon arrival having regard to the validity of your passport / travel document, etc., you can submit an application for extension of stay via this online service for completing the remaining period of your current contract after renewal of your passport / travel document, provided that the employer confirms to continue your employment. Extension of stay will not normally be granted to the imported labour upon completion or termination of his/her employment contract. A new application for a visa/ entry permit should be submitted for a new employment contract.

However, you are not eligible to use the service if:


you are not physically present in Hong Kong at the time of submission;


you will not be physically present in Hong Kong at the time of collection of your “e-Visa”;


you are on visitor status;


your remaining limit of stay is more than 4 weeks;


your limit of stay has expired;


your travel document will expire in 3 months;


you need to depart Hong Kong and will not return before the expiry of your limit of stay; or


you have been notified that your next extension of stay will be subject to review.
