Can I Interview For New Job Opportunities in Hong Kong If I Hold a Temporary Training Visa Here?
Posted in Employment Visas, The Hong Kong Visa Geeza, Your Question Answered /
The Hong Kong training visa is designed to allow foreign nationals to come to Hong Kong for a limited time to undergo or deliver training. Will ImmD entertain an application from a training visa holder to take up employment with another business while that training is ongoing?
Dear Visa Geeza,
Thanks in advance for your help.
I’m currently on a training visa, but interviewing with potential employers for a full-time position.
In case I decided to cut my training period short, would I be able to apply for a work visa within the validity of my trainee visa?
In that case – upon approval of the work visa – would the ID automatically “cancel” my trainee visa and issue me with a work visa sticker?
