Complex immigration scenarios sometimes present themselves with unforeseen consequences – which I am grateful to be able to explore in this excellent question just in…
I am Canadian and have lived in Hong Kong for almost 6 years.
I recently quit my job and my working visa will expire by the end of December this year.
I have a question – what are my options to extend my stay here if I a have baby born in Hong Kong?
I live with my fiancé (she has a working visa in Hong Kong) and our baby (who has a dependant visa sponsored by her.)
We also have a domestic helper living with us, as my employee.
Our marriage is in process but unfortunately will not be finalized until after my visa expires.
I am, at the same time, looking for a new job in Hong Kong.
Is there any way I can be permitted to remain in Hong Kong in my circumstances?
I would be very grateful for your answer so I know what to do and what my options are
