I found my own employer, what do I do?

If you have found your own employer, congratulations! This is what we call direct hire. Please ask your employer to contact our office to begin the process of hiring you directly.

You will be asked to do a medical to demonstrate that you are "fit to work" before your employer signs contracts. The costs vary depending on the location and your age, usually between 3000 and 4100 pesos. We now have the ability to do processing in Manila, Dagupan, Davao, Bacolod, and Iloilo. If you don’t have a valid TESDA then you will need to attend training and pass a TESDA exam. Cost vary based on locale: 8500 - 11,500 pesos. You will also need to pay for a pregnancy test before deploying to HK, cost 250- 500 pesos. All other costs, including a 2nd medical, are borne by the employer. 

We will instruct you as to which agency to contact. They give you further instructions. You will be required to sign contracts, and complete documentation to apply for a HK work visa. You will need to bring:

  • your passports: new (passport must be valid for 2 years) and old

  • HKID if ex Hong Kong

  • Your copy of past contracts if ex-Hong Kong

The contract and other documents will be sent to Arrow Employment Services in Hong Kong. After your employer signs them, we will begin processing your visa application. 

Please carefully follow all instructions from our partner agencies, or your application could be delayed.
