killed immigrants

This is a quota-based program that seeks to attract highly-skilled persons to settle in Hong Kong. An applicant does not need to obtain a job offer in advance before entering into Hong Kong on a "skilled immigrants" transfer. Two sets of points system are used to evaluate applicants. These are the "Achievement Based Points Test" [ [http://www.immd.gov.hk/ehtml/QMAS_8A.htm The Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region - Immigration Department ] ] and the "General Points Test".

Permanent residents can sponsor family members to immigrate to Hong Kong. The family member sponsored by the Permanent Resident must be either "their spouse, or an unmarried dependent child under the age of 18, or a parent aged 60 years or above".
