Have you recently migrated to Hong Kong? How do you plan to get around the country? Are you planning to drive? Did you get your driving license translated already? These are important questions for you to answer if you plan to commute privately in Hong Kong after migrating from a foreign country, especially one with a different official language. Why are these questions so important? In addition to being prepared to handle the heavy traffic density of Hong Kongs streets, you may also need to get your driving license officially translated and transferred.
Driving after moving to Hong Kong may be a relatively smooth legal transition for people migrating from Switzerland, South Africa the US, Spain, Australia, Austria, Malaysia, Bangladesh, Belgium, Canada, China, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, India, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nigeria, Norway, Pakistan, Portugal, Singapore, Sweden, and the UK. This is because Hong Kongs laws allow for people holding these foreign country driving licenses to be permitted to drive but there are some conditions that must be met first.
