    Good Evening Wildrose,
    Visitors with Irish Republican passports are able to stay without a visa for up to 90 days in Hong Kong.
    However it should be noted that your passports must have at least 6 months validity left after your departure from Hong Kong.
    I hope that this is helpful,
    Have a great trip

    Philip

    HI! I will be going to Hongkong to wait for my new work permit as a live-in caregiver. The immigration(Canada) as me to start my program(Live-in caregiver progrm) because I wasn't able to complete the 24 months required within 3 years so, I was advised to exit in Hongkong and wait for my new work permit there. It was in Hongkong where I obtained my previous work permit because I was working there then. My question is, will I be allowed to stay there while waiting? The immigration officer here in Canada told me that she already had a reply from Canadian Consulate in Hongkong that I wouldn't wait long as usual(6 months processing). How long will I be allowed to stay there? Please help me. PLEASE...PLEASE...PLEASE.... thank you.

    I plan to HongKong in August 2009 from Canada. I'm holding Canadian travel document, and Canadian resident permanent card, but my nationalty is Indian. If I need to apply a visa before departing my homw town, Canada?
    If yes, please tell me how to apply it, because there's no any Embassy of HongKong in Montreal city.

    My brother has green card in U.S. but he doesn't has any passport from where we were from. Back in those days, U.S. actually took away our passports. He needs to go to Hong Kong for emergency family business, what can he do?

    I am a South African citizen and permanent resident of Australia and will be travelling to Hong Kong and Macau for 10 days in December. As far as I am aware I will recieve a visa on arrival at both Hong Kong and Macau but need a visa should I travel anywhere else in China. I will be travelling from Macau to Hong Kong and returning to Macau via direct Ferry. Do I require a visa to travel between the both destinations as it can be seen that I am in China while I am in transit on the ferry?

    Thanks

    Hi there, nice to know you all here! This is Cindy from Guilin Tianyuan International Travel Service. We are located in a picturesque city --- GUILIN. As a professional tour operator, we are very pleased to help people from all over the world with their trips to Guilin and other parts of China :)

    Generally speaking, it is good season from April to November to travel to Guilin, as the weather is nicer during this period, and people can enjoy a very beautiful natural picture consisted of limpid water, miraculous peaks, green plants and blossomy flowers.

    Travelling in Guilin, people will never need to worry that there is nothing to see! Elephant Trunk Peak, Seven Star Park, Two Rivers & Four Lakes, Reed Flute Cave, Seven Star Cave, Gudong Waterfall Scenic Spot (a rare waterfall that people can climb)... these and more wonderful sciences are waiting for your coming and exploration.
    (Notes: Two Rivers --- Li River & Peach Blossom River; Four Lakes --- Banyan Lake, Chinese Fir Lake, Laurel Lake & Wooden Dragon Lake; They are connected and usually tourists visit them by boat and taking a walk)

    If you are tired of spending your time in city, it will be a good choice to go the LONGSHENG Terraced Rice Fields, which are built along the slope winding from the riverside up to the mountain top. The highest part is 880 meters in elevation while the lowest part is 380 m. The coiling line that starts from the mountain foot up to the mountain top divides the mountain into layers of water glittering in the sun in spring, layers of green rice shoots in summer, layers of golden rice in fall, and layers of silvery frost in winter. Just imagine how amazing it is!

    Another place never should be missed is the worldwide well-known YANGSHUO County, which is 67 km away from Guilin. It is said that “The landscape of Guilin tops in the world, and that of Yangshuo tops in Guilin” --- you can imagine how attractive it is even if you have never been to Yangshuo, you The popular activities in Yangshuo are very colorful: wandering around the West Street, visiting various traditional and modern shops in the West Street, sitting at an outdoor café, tasting the delicious local food and snacks, cycling along the road for sightseeing, rock climbing, Li River cruising, bamboo raft floating on Yulong River… There must be something that interests you.

    For citizens from the Great Britan to stay in Hong Kong within 3 months, you don't need a visa. But most of travellers would go to mainland China from Hong Kong, you got need a visa then. But you can easily get a Mainland China visa in Hong Kong.

    If you stay just 3 days in KH, there's no need to get a HK visa. But as long as you go to mainland China, you do need a visa.

    We are on South African passports and I note we do not need a visa for up to one month stay in Hong King, but we are residents of Dubai, UAE. My 15 year old daughter is going on a business studies trip with her school in February from Dubai - does she need a visa and what documents will she require to depart Dubai and enter and depart Hong Kong?
  • edited 6:17PM
    @shelby - in theory no visa is required for your daughter, but as she is a minor there may be additional requirements. I would contact the China consulate in Dubai for clarity: http://dubai.china-consulate.org/eng/
