Who can Use this Service

Generally speaking, foreign domestic helpers (FDHs) must leave Hong Kong upon completion of their contract or within two weeks from the date of termination of their contract, whichever is earlier. Applications for an extension of limit of stay in Hong Kong as a visitor will be considered on individual merits. To allow sufficient time for processing, online applications will only be accepted from those applicants with remaining limit of stay of 5 to 7 days.

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”;


your remaining limit of stay is not 5 to 7 days;


your limit of stay has expired;


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


your condition of stay granted upon your arrival in Hong Kong is not foreign domestic helper.

* Applicants who are not eligible for online application may visit the Foreign Domestic Helpers Section at 4th Floor, Administration Tower, Immigration Headquarters, 61 Po Yap Road, Tseung Kwan O, New Territories during working hours to submit an application for extension of stay.
