Outward Processing Arrangement
The Outward Processing Arrangement (OPA) enables registered manufacturers to subcontract the subsidiary or minor finishing processes outside Hong Kong without affecting the eligibility of such goods for attaining Hong Kong origin status.
To be eligible to participate in OPA, a manufacturer must hold a valid Factory Registration and obtain prior OPA registration with the Department. All goods subject to OPA must have undergone the principal/origin-conferring manufacturing processes in Hong Kong for attaining Hong Kong origin status. Once approved, OPA registration is valid until expiry or cancellation of the Factory Registration. OPA is a free service.
