“ Dear Stephen,

I wanted to follow up with you on the results of the above enquiry. All I can say is a very big THANK YOU. Your advice, your Visa Extension kit and your services are invaluable.

My current employment visa was due to expire tomorrow and I went in to the 5/F extension section today (the day before) – I had completely forgotten to start the process 4 weeks earlier. I also needed to travel again on May 4th for business and would not have been able to return to HKG until May 25th.

So I was concerned about getting an interim visa and then being back here in time to collect my extension.

In addition, I had so many issues the last time around with delays on getting the extension that I was very apprehensive about this round (my sponsoring employer is a very new company established in HKG only a few years ago and when I transferred my sponsor from a previous to current employer I had a very hard time getting the extension that was my second 2 year extension). This was my final 3 year extension.

However, I followed your instructions and our company used your templates to the letter with a few minor modifications and I went to my pre-booked appointment today and despite the wait of a couple of hours, and the late application for extension —- to my absolute pleasant surprise the HK Immigration approved me within 2 hours for the 3 year extension!!!

No hassles, no questions and no requirement for additional documents. I am very relieved and extremely pleased with the results of your guidance.

Thank you for your openness in sharing knowledge with the community and demystifying this process. “
