The Consulate General of India, also pointed out that holding Pre-Arrival Registration (PAR) is not a guarantee of the registrant's successful entry in Hong Kong and the above-mentioned requirements need to be followed

"Please note that holding a valid PAR is not a guarantee of the registrant's successful entry to the HKSAR. Instances have come to our notice when not following the above requirements have resulted in Hong Kong Immigration refusing permission to land. This entails such persons returning back to port of embarkation from India by the same airline as well as certain hardships at the airport waiting for repatriation," the statement said.
