Hong Kong

Hong Kong has attracted foreigners for many decades. Low tax, stable government and its geographic location have made Hong Kong home to many international companies. There are still many work opportunities for expatriates, but the job market has become tighter in recent years due to increased work permit regulations and competition from local and mainland Chinese employees.

To be competitive in the job market, expats looking to work in Hong Kong should be able to demonstrate a high degree of professionalism, experience and specialist knowledge. If not, it may be hard to find a position that cannot be filled by a Chinese employee. Language is another important requirement: most jobs require either Cantonese or Mandarin, or both, as well as English. It is an advantage to have a degree from a well-ranked university, as this is highly regarded in Hong Kong.
