Tough question this – so what’s the answer…?
Hello Hong Kong Visa Geeza,
This website is simply wonderful and resourceful!! Thanks.
I had a question and was wondering if you can please help.
I finish 7 years in Hong Kong in November and my current employment visa expires on the same day
I would like to continue my life here as a Hong Kong Permanent Resident.
However, my employing company is not doing that well and it may shut down or a few of us might be fired this summer.
Unfortunately, if it happens in September or October, it will leave me very little time to find a new job/apply for any academic course to be able to remain resident here under a new employment or student visa.
I am already looking for jobs but it’s not easy to get one currently.
Please let me know your opinion about the best course of action I can take now or in the coming days and what is the usual course of action if someone is fired 15/20 days before end of 7 years, for example.
