During the period, they may work to finance their stay or study short-term courses. The annual quota from each side will be 500.

Details of visa application procedures for applicants from Hong Kong will be available on the website of the Consulate General of Italy in Hong Kong at conshongkong.esteri.it/consolato_hongkong/en/ in due course.
