Talents Service Unit (TSU) online platform
The online platform of the Talents Service Unit (TSU) was launched in December 2022 to attract talents from all over the world. It enables talents to obtain information on the various talent admission schemes and submit applications more easily.
The platform provides one-stop electronic services for talents from around the world. After entering the landing page, users can browse all kinds of practical information, including Hong Kong's advantages and development opportunities, details of the various talent admission schemes, as well as information on the necessities of living in Hong Kong. Potential applicants can use the online platform's Talent Admission Scheme Matching Tool to find out the schemes they are eligible for, and then immediately proceed to the Immigration Department's "e-Visa" platform connected by the TSU online platform to submit applications online; to the convenience of talents located outside Hong Kong, the subsequent payment and visa collection procedures can also take place online.
