Last month, the Hong Kong Immigration Department announced the latest changes to the visa/entry permit application process. Starting from June 19, criminal records need to be declared if foreign servants, laborers, or students come to Hong Kong to apply for visas.
Many people are curious about why Hong Kong announced this new rule. This is because He Jiankui, the former associate professor of Southern University of Science and Technology who was sentenced to three years in prison for the “Gene Edited Baby Incident”, was approved to apply for the “High-End Talent Pass Plan” at the beginning of the year. It has sparkled a heated discussion among Chinese netizens.
