    All students without the right of abode/right to land in Hong Kong must apply for a student visa for the purpose of education from the Hong Kong Immigration Department (ImmD). It is the responsibility of individual students to make appropriate visa arrangement before coming to Hong Kong. 

    All student visa applicants are required to have a local sponsor. While admitting to HKU, they should request the HKU Admissions and Academic Liaison Section (AAL) of the Registry to be their visa sponsor. Details on student visa application procedures can be viewed at
