"The Immigration Department, apart from controlling the movement of people into and out of the HKSAR, also provides services to local residents including the issue of HKSAR passports and other travel documents, visas and identity cards, the handling of nationality matters and the registration of births, deaths and marriages. Considerable effort also goes into detecting and prosecuting immigration law offenders, and removing illegal immigrants.

Policies are framed to limit to an acceptable level population growth through immigration, and to control the entry of foreign workers. Immigration procedures for Hong Kong residents, tourists and businessmen are streamlined. Nationals of more than 170 countries and territories are allowed visa free visits to Hong Kong. While ensuring that professionals and businessmen are welcome to work and invest in the local community, effort is also made to prevent the entry of undesirable persons and the departure of persons wanted for criminal offences.
