Provisional Property Management Practitioner Licence
During the transitional period, those who do not meet the criteria for academic and/or professional qualifications but possess the specified work experience may apply for a provisional licence. A person who applies for a provisional licence must possess work experience in assuming a managerial or supervisory roleNote 1 in the provision of property management services for properties in Hong Kong, as follows:
If you are a provisional PMP licence applicant, in order to be eligible for applying for a formal PMP licence, you have to complete the PMSA specified course (specified course) designed for provisional licencees before the expiry of the provisional PMP licence. For the sake of prudence, please obtain a provisional PMP licence before enrollment to a specified course. Those having completed a specified course within the validity of the provisional PMP licence may apply for a formal PMP licence without meeting the academic and/or professional qualifications criteria.Note 2
Starting from 1 August 2021, applicants of provisional PMP licence are allowed to choose licence validity periodNote 3 of either 12 months, 24 months or 36 months. There is no mechanism for renewal of provisional PMP licences.
Note 2: After completion of a specified course, an application for a formal licence must be made during the validity of the provisional licence or within three years from the expiry of the provisional licence. A new application accompanied by the relevant fee (i.e. full application and licence fee) must be made, but documentary evidence for work experience is not required.
Note 3: This arrangement also applies to applications for provisional PMP licence which have been submitted before 1 August 2021 and are still being processed.
