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.
