Are you planning a trip to Hong Kong soon? To do this you do not need a visa from Hong Kong. If you are visiting Hong Kong you must submit a valid US passport. At least one month after your intended Hong Kong stay, your US Passport should be valid. Note that many countries may require at least six months validity on your passport when you intend to stay in that country. Therefore, if you intend to travel to neighboring countries, it is recommended that you have a passport that complies with the requirements of those countries.
It is also advised to have proof of sufficient funds while traveling to Hong Kong. The funds should be sufficient so that you do not need to look for work in Hong Kong to supplement your income during your stay. Additionally, you should possess proof of a return ticket to your designated country.
NOTE: When traveling to Hong Kong, you may be required to obtain a transit visa. A transit visa is required if you are traveling to a specific country but will have a layover in a preceding country. It is recommended that you check the status of your flight and see if a transit visa is required.
If you intend to travel to Hong Kong’s bordering countries, you should ensure that your passports are valid for at least six months beyond your departure from Hong Kong to avoid any complications when traveling to countries outside of Hong Kong.
