Visa Service Department

Since 1996, as authorized by the original MOFTEC (now the Ministry of Commerce), the Visa Service Department of China Inspection Company Limited began to issue the "Certificate of Non-manipulation" for products exported from the Mainland to the beneficiary countries of the EU GSP via Hong Kong. In 2004, as commissioned by the AQSIQ and the General Administration of Customs, the Department began to issue the "Certificate of Non-manipulation" for products under the Preferential Tariff Agreement on Import/Export between the Mainland and Countries or Regions in the Free Trade Area when they are transited via Hong Kong.

For years, the Department has gradually formed the rigid visa operation process from acceptance of pre-application to pre-check, random goods inspection, check of original of Certificate of Origin, issuance of "Certificate of Non-manipulation", etc. in the experience in visa work. Each batch of goods applied for inspection are tracked and understood through the online inquiry system, with focus on spot check of sensitive goods. During the check, the consistency between the container number, seal identification number and outer package of goods and the documents is verified to ensure the source of the goods is proper.

The Department now provides "Certificate of Non-manipulation" visa, expedite handling of GSP Certificate of Origin for Guangdong and Shenzhen, general Certificate of Origin and Regional Preferential Certificate of Origin, agency for foreign economic and trade documents and certificates and certification by foreign consulates in China, confirmation of country of origin of fresh and living produce, etc. for merchants.

At present, the Department has set up inspection sites in Kwai Chung Container Terminals, government cargo works areas, Yuen Long Industrial Estate, Tsing Yi of New Territories, etc. More than 10 experienced inspectors stay at the sites by turns to inspect goods transited via Hong Kong according to the actual situation and actively coordinate the clear time of the goods. The inspection sites are opened during weekends and holidays. The Department provides express delivery service for customers from the Mainland and ensures "Standardized Visa and Efficient Service".

By right of the strict spot check and audit system, high quality standardized service and good reputation, the Visa Service Department has been recognized and praised by customers and port related authorities for years.
