Hong Kong altered visa norm for Indians:
Hong Kong, which used to be part of a block of countries that gave Indians unconditional visa-free entry, has introduced “pre-registration” for Indian nationals to prevent illegal immigration.

Previous Provisions:
Under the previous visa agreement, Indian visitors could visit the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region for 14 days without visa requirements.

Reason behind alteration of the visa norms:
Overstaying Indian nationals violating visa norms prompted Hong Kong, a China-administered territory, to alter its visa agreement with India.
