You are strongly recommended to apply for a student visa through Center of Development and Resources for Students (CEDARS) or China Affairs Office (CAO). Normally, the Hong Kong Immigration Department takes around 8-10 weeks for processing an individual application upon receiving the complete set of documents (the actual processing time could be longer for individual cases, especially if your documents are incomplete or you cannot confirm your study programme).
