Confirmation of visit dates

  • When you are formally invited to participate in an IAS program, an official invitation letter with detailed program information will be issued to you by mail. Please confirm with us your attendance in our program at your earliest convenience.

  • We may provide you with a daily honorarium during your visit and/ or a non-accountable travel allowance to help defray your costs of traveling to Hong Kong. The honorarium is used to subsidize your local expenses, including but not limited to local transportation, meal costs and accommodation.

  • To arrange reimbursement of your honorarium and/or allowance, please confirm with us your visit dates by providing a copy of your itinerary at least 3 weeks before your arrival. Your itinerary will serve as the confirmation of the period of participation in our program.

  • In the event any changes are to be made to your visiting plan or information provided, please inform us at least 3 weeks before the commencement of the program. Late changes may lead to delay in payment/reimbursement.

Payment Methods

  • Cash Cheque in HK dollars

    Unless otherwise specified, a cash cheque under your passport name with a lump sum of your non-accountable travel allowance and/or your honorarium will be issued to you in Hong Kong dollars. You can go to designated banks in Hong Kong to clear the cheque.

    If your stay is shorter than one month, payments will generally be arranged within 1 week of your departure.

    If your stay is longer than one month, payments will normally be made on a monthly basis.

  • Cheque / Bank draft in other currencies

    Please note a longer lead time is required for issuing bank drafts. Please confirm your preferred payment method with our office at the soonest possible time.
