To open a Hong Kong bank account you will need a local Hong Kong company, the structure of the company, as example the number of directors and shareholders, isn’t relevant but all the directors and shareholders holding more than 10% of the shares will have to attend the bank account opening meeting in Hong Kong.

Hong Kong companies benefiting from nominee services, Hong Kong nominee director and/or Hong Kong nominee shareholder are accepted only by a few banks and always necessitate enhanced due diligence.

Offshore companies are accepted but not all of them, a BVI (British Virgin Islands) company can't anymore open a Hong Kong bank account,banks in Hong Kong are step by step terminating the BVI’s corporate bank accounts.
