Residency-by–Investment. The Residency-by-Investment comes in two options, the Quality Migrant Admission Scheme (QMAS) and the General Employment Policy (GEP). Another option related to GEP is that of Investment as Entrepreneurs. QMAS attracts extraordinarily talented and skilled individuals to settle in Hong Kong professional employment. On the other hand, the GEP outlines the knowledge, exceptional skills, and experience requirements for foreign nationals seeking to stay in Hong Kong for professional employment. Individuals with these types of residency cannot serve as a company secretary in Hong Kong.
