You knew better than the officer working for ImmD :)

Posted in Testimonials /

“Dear Stephen

Thought I’d just let you know that I have now received the extension which took me to 9 years as you had said (3 years under normal GEP extension, then 6 years using Top Tier Stream)!

Ironically, the officer who took our application at the counter on 5th floor Wanchai insisted they’d only count the 6 years from the current extension granted date, rather than the current extension expiry date.

You knew better than the officer working for ImmD 🙂

Thanks again for all your help.”
