When you arrive in Hong Kong, you must show your e-Visa to an immigration officer for activiation. You will then receive a landing slip showing “Student-Permitted to remain until DD-MM-YYYY”. It bears your name, travel document number, arrival date, conditions and limit of stay in Hong Kong. Without the landing slip, your student visa is not activated and you will NOT be able to register with The Education University of Hong Kong. Students should keep the landing slip as it is a proof of your condition of stay in Hong Kong.
