A delegation from the Hong Kong Immigration Department will visit New Zealand and Australia between April 29 and May 4 to promote various talent admission schemes to the second generation of emigrated Hong Kong residents, students, professionals and others who are interested in developing a career in Hong Kong.

Led by Assistant Principal Immigration Officer of the Hong Kong Immigration Department, Mr Choi Chi-yuen, the delegation will have gatherings with local Hong Kong community in Auckland and Sydney on details of the various talent admission schemes with particular reference to the Admission Scheme aimed at attracting the second generation of Chinese Hong Kong permanent residents from overseas to return to Hong Kong to supplement Hong Kong's human capital.
