Stephen Barnes

After graduating from the London School of Economics, I started my first dedicated Hong Kong immigration practice, LL.B Consultancy, in Kowloon in 1993 straight out of law school.

In 1996, I wrote, then published, the first edition of the Hong Kong Visa Handbook on the internet – which went on to be the leading D-I-Y guide to the Hong Kong visa and immigration process.

For my sins, I am generally acknowledged as expert in all matters relating to Hong Kong immigration and for many years have delivered CPD programmes to the legal community of the HKSAR.

I am often invited to speak on the topic of Hong Kong visas in the community and widely sought after for comment on immigration issues from the Hong Kong press.

I also appear regularly on Government owned RTHK Radio 3 answering visa and immigration questions live on air as a guest of the venerable Mr Phil Whelan.

I publish on my blog Hong Kong Visa Geeza 4~5 times weekly so please check me out there and, if you ever have any Hong Kong visa or immigration question you need an answer to, please feel free to call me on +852 9667 4095 at any time - always happy to help!
