Can you get a self-sponsored change of sponsorship Hong Kong work visa? Fantastic question this which took me 10 minutes to think the answer through for!
As an expat, I currently work for a company that sponsored me in Hong Kong for my work visa.
I now no longer want to work exclusively for the company but as a consultant.
My wife has registered a business, a sole proprietorship in Hong Kong, to which I want to move my employment.
My former company will give my wife’s company a consulting contract.
Can I transfer my work permit to a sole proprietorship?
We also are looking to hire one person.
Can a sole proprietor make hires in Hong Kong?
Another wrinkle is that my wife’s visa is attached to my employment visa, what happens to her dependant visa if I change my sponsor?
