Foreigners who have owned property in Hong Kong for three or more years will get their extra stamp duty refunded if they take up permanent residency as part of a global talent drive the city leader will announce in his policy address next week, the Post has learned.
Chief Executive John Lee Ka-chiu is also expected to introduce a new 18-month visa to attract graduates from renowned universities with no conditions attached as part of the plan to stanch a brain drain worsened by the Covid-19 border restrictions of recent years.
Local employers will also be given a freer hand to hire overseas talent without first proving a lack of suitable candidates already in the city, according to government insiders.
With some neighbourhoods fetching over $100,000 per sq ft, Hong Kong has retained it’s leading position in the list of the most expensive housing markets, also topping the ranking for the world’s costliest cities to live for expats for the second year running.
The increasing demand for luxurious real estate in Hong Kong coming from Mainland China guarantees a favorable climate for investors. The question is only where to choose that dream spot that will become a great deal both for habitation and for the wallet.
Here is the list of the most exclusive neighborhoods in Hong Kong to choose from.
