3. How can the HKTDC help
To assist your visa application, the Conference organiser(s) can issue you an official invitation letter. Please send us a request at least two months before the Conference begins.
After receiving and verifying the requested documents, we will send you the invitation letter one week later.
It will normally take four to six weeks for the Immigration Department to process a visit/transit visa/entry permit application upon receipt of all the required documents. Please note the issuance of a visa is at the discretion of the Hong Kong Immigration Department
