Walia, you should first ensure that you hold an Indian passport valid for at least six months; and you intend to visit the HKSAR for a stay not exceeding 14 days.

If you meet the requirements, then you can contact HK Immigration Department for the reason of the unsuccessful pre-registration. Tel.: (852) 2824 6111

Guys pls post a solution here if found !! Has someone tried the application again after some days if this works on the second go ? My hunch is that selecting the option of 0 to 4999 HKD for funds has lead to this. If you select the option with more funds say 10,000 HKD and above this works, but the catch it seems is if your registration is un-successful once it remains like that even if you change the value later. I tried trice today but no success.

I am facing the same issue. My form is getting unsuccessful again and again.

I tried with some dummy details and when I changed place of passport issue to Delhi, keeping all the dummy details intact, it was successful. ( at first instance the same passport number got unsuccessful when I took other place of passport issue).

Has anyone noticed the same ?
So either they r nt accepting visitors from some Indian cities or their system is not yet updated for the same.

few know about what to do when your PAR IS UNSUCCESSFUL. Once it's unsuccessful, don't try again and again. You will have to post all your required documents (Mentioned on their website) with a demand draft of 190hk $ to immigration department of Hongkong. This process takes about 3 weeks. There is no other way hence make sure you have that much time. I have gone through this. Once they verify your documents, they will mail you the visa by post. Then only you can travel. Hence be very careful while doing your PAR. Don't attempt yourself. Ask someone who knows how to do it. Travel agents would be good.:: hope this helps.

I know someone whose visa was not processed even after 28 days.

We applied from India. Even after repeated calling and email no help received from immigration department. Ultimately tickets had to be cancelled resulting in 60000 loss.

Another I could suggest in apply for Macau. They have mentioned on their website that visa is processed in 5 days. Hong Kong and Macau are connected by speedboats. Hong Kong Immigration check points at their ferry terminals. Might be other way around also possible. Call and check some hotel in Macau

I am an Indian national living in China and want to travel to Hong Kong for 7 days (starting Apr 23), I tried doing PAR today and it says unsuccessful. Hotel and flight were already booked. I wish they just said apply for a visa (without this uncertainty). Visa cost is nothing compared to other costs (flight, hotels). I hope they at least let us know the reason for the PAR to be unsuccessful.

For those sending the application directly by post to the HK immigration department, it will take AT LEAST 6 weeks to get the Visa tags in hand from the day it reaches HK, and may well take a few weeks more than that (I know people who have got it over 10 weeks after it reached).

Those submitting through a local sponsor in person at the HK immigration department, with the sponsor paying the fees and collecting the tags in person once the Visa is approved can hope to get it in 4 weeks if you are very lucky.

The reason PAR gets unsuccessful is,your passport place of Issue and age.if you are between 18 to 35. Your PAR will be unsuccessful for Hyderabad,Candigarh,Jalandhar Nasik and there are few more.If your place of issue is Delhi.No restriction of age.It will always be successful.

The external ministry of India has no power or authority to impose any suggestion or issue, about HK immigration policy and control on the immigration department of the Hong Kong Special administrative region of the people's republic of China.

Several outcomes when the PAR is obtained by deliberately providing untrue information (e.g., providing different place of issuance, place of birth or age than the travel document):
1) Be denied transportation by the airline (most likely scenario).
2) If you somehow got on the plane and reached HK, then you will be arrested by HK immigration for committing an offence punishable for two years in jail and a fine of up to HK$100,000.
DO NOT TRY TO CHEAT. Seriously, do you really think they won't find out with the computerized system?

I HAVE FRESH Experienced OF hongkong immigration they are very clear if your registration is unsuccessful u will have to apply proper visa but it takes atleast 5 weeks minimum, if you are applying for proper visa do refer for documents required for submitting along with application form and 190 hongkong Dollar DD, if the documents r not submitted in complete it would delay the process more

And if someone trying to change the place of issue to get PAR successfull they would be denied, I have seen almost all Indians are taken in a separate room and been thoroughly intorogated and varified by them, if they find any correction they would themselves try to rectify and allow entry for hongkong but for some cases in hyderabad were age group above 18 to 40 are getting unsuccessful cannot travel as those PAR are not correctable

The immigration people would give 2 options to go back or take a ferry from inside the Hong Kong airport towards Macau which is visa free for Indians

U can spend few days here ....

The major problem here is there has been asylum problems many unwanted Indians especially from few cities of India are illegally getting settled

If someone really wants to visit hongkong whose par is unsuccessful can go for proper visa but should plan for 2 to 3 months prior

No hongkong embassy in India and Chinese embassy are of no use do not waste time with them, yes I have sent my proper visa but it took around 5 to 6 weeks time , for first three weeks there won't be any reply later you will get a reference numbers through which you can track your visa application

Thank you Rajesh for your advise, which is a genuine one. Wish we could have contacted you before we planned out all. We never realised that PAR can be unsuccessful and tired to register 25 days before the date of departure. Mine was successful but my husband's turned out unsuccessful. We searched on the net and understood that it is a common problem. However couldnot understand the way out. Came across this website. We tried to accelerate the process of VISA application ( as we had 21 days in between) with the help of VSA Global ( Hong Kong) Limited
They CLAIM to get your Visa done in 14 days.But it a FRAUD!!!! DO NOT fall into it. Immigration department takes their sweet time of 28-30 working days and there is not way of accelerating the process ( This has been communicated by the immigration department only). We lost thousands in the process and had to cancel all possible arrangements together with the 14K we paid to VSA for no good reason.
So if you don't plan 2-3 months prior there is no way out!

Once you get your reference number,write an application to the Immigration with attached documents of exam details. They will speed up the process.I got the visa for my son in 1 week 4 days.Ofcourse I had the advantage of visiting the Immigration personally.I hope this helps

Getting visa is only solution you can get your PAR successfull by either changing place of issue of passport but that would be thoroughly verified by immigration department at hongkong airport and later would be denied entry to hongkong...hence Do go for proper visa
If u have booked your tour do extend the dates by postponing at least by 2 to 3 months and submit your travel itinerary and all other documents required clearly mentioned online with 290 hongkong Dollar for each traveller
Note : you need to send separate application form for each travellers

Please change your date to atleast September 1st week after applying proper visa directly to hongkong immigration office or cancel your bookings of hongkong and can travel to Macau with internal ferry from hongkong airport if you are visiting for a lisure trip....Macau is visa free for India and is Las Vegas of the east you can have good time there as well

Hi there,

My PAR is getting "unsuccessful". Anybody knows why? I am eligible. I hold an Indian passport but reside in Canada. Is that the reason?

I am travelling in October so I have a month for application. Should I apply for a full visa? I am visiting only for 4 days.

Please help!

Guys, I have a diff problem for which I need help. PAR made successfully and notification slip also printed - now noticed a mistake made while entering Place of Birth - so it is not matching the passport POB.

Has anyone re-applied for PAR (for the same passport number) with corrected details - and obtained PAR successfully the 2nd time? If yes, how to do it- just click the Link and enter all details again like a fresh application?

PLs help...my travel is in 2 weeks.

Got my corrected PAR successfully! If u got a PAR with details not matching ur PP, just click the link for PAR and re-input all details (like a fresh application) - take special care about place of birth, city of residence, etc - use option Others if ur value is not there in the list of values.
There is no reference to earlier issued PAR...

Hello can yu plz tell how many days the pre registration form is valid? I have successfully filled everything bt it shows dat it is timeout even I tried second time filling everything bt it shows dat yu have already successfully done i don't know wat to Do now😒 plz suggest me some idea
Answered by Srini from Bahrain | Aug. 24, 2017 23:19

Registration is valid for 6 months. Timeout is usually because of computer problems or u were slow in entering...try the following options
1) try entering a fresh application from a different computer..keep all details together and ready on a separate paper so that u do not waste time looking at various documents while inputting data

2) There is an option of retrieving your notification using the secret question and answer...
as per FAQ on their website "To view or reprint a notification slip, you may use the "View/Print Registration Notification Slip" function of the PAR system. To use this function, you are required to input your Indian passport number, select the Identification Question chosen and provided the exact answer provided during the registration process.:"
3) last option is contact HKG immigration ... write to enquiryimmd.gov.hk - with ur passport number and other details and explain the problem.. they will reply after 4-5 days... or u can call HK immigration on their tel number shown on the website.

I suggest u should try option 2 first.
After ur problem is solved, pls do post ur feedback as to how u did it- so it will help others

Please note that the PAR registration & notification slip must match the passport. No use entering a false POB in the application just to get a PAR.. Airline will not allow boarding if PAR does not match with PP.
If u want to register with a different POB, then a new passport must be issued with the new POB mentioned on it - before u apply for a PAR with that info.

Hi , my name is Vijay Singh and I already registered for pre registrations for arrival in Hong Kong. But could not print. I tried several times at last got the small print and when I went to Airport then Airlines Cathay pacific turned me down. Although I visited more than 3 times to Hong Kong in the past but they still turned me down. It was really bad. I presume they want to decline entry of Indian passport holders. It is too bad for immigration department of Indian Passport holders

The standard processing time for a HK visa is no less than 4 weeks (provided that you have submitted ALL required documents BY POST to Hong Kong). The Chinese embassy in Delhi has EXPLICITLY STATED on its webpage that it would NOT accept Hong Kong visa applications made by Indians. Plan accordingly.

Is there ANYONE who has received the Visa by post from HongKong? PAR UNSUCCESSFUL and I applied for the entry permit 4 weeks ago ( registered post and it was received 4 weeks ago) but no update whatsoever - And with NO way to track - I checked with the bank if the drafts have been encashed- and it seems that hasn't been done yet.. I wonder if this is a message that Indians SHOULD STOP wasting their monies for HK Tourism..
This is one of the worst experiences I have had with entry permit application process.
I am not even Sure if anyone gets a entry permit even after applying with all required documents to HK Embassy.. Pretty weird workflow where the customer has no way to track!!
