It is a little known fact that 90% of all applicants for visas at the Hong Kong Immigration Department who instruct immigration consultants to help out on their cases never meet their advisors face to face: the service is almost exclusively provided remotely via the internet and telephone.

Moreover, visa consultancies now experience almost 100% of their new Hong Kong Immigration Department case instructions from Google searches or via other internet site or personal/past client referrals. Yet the industry remains stubbornly attached to the pre-internet service paradigm – and the hidden costs to clients can be enormous.

We’ve come to understand that technology can now be leveraged very cost effectively to allow visa applicants to take control of their own cases by providing them with industry-standard knowledge resources for free and then standing ready to help out, for very reasonable service fees, with intellectual and professional case input based on years of visa and immigration expertise.

It is this ‘intellectual glue’ which is key to visa case success and the technology is now available to turn a typical 12,000 Hong Kong Dollar service fee into a HKD2,000 teleconference consultation.

Under this service model, the client can save more than 80% in professional service fees whilst the consultancy still retains the necessary profit margins to remain a commercially attractive business proposition.

It just makes sense.

Overheads are kept very low (no fancy offices), case management practices are fully systemised (removing the traditional inefficiencies endemic in the Hong Kong visa services industry) and clients pay only for the real value in the relationship with their advisors, namely, their consultant’s expertise, knowledge and experience.

We’re proud of the Hong Kong Visa Handbook and hope that it contains everything you need to get your visa approved without anyone’s help.

But if you do need assistance with an application to the Hong Kong Immigration Department, that help is just one easy consultation away.
