Over the last 20 years or so I have coined a number of phrases in Hong Kong Immigration parlance, amongst which what I call the Visa Gossip & Rumours


In this short video, I discuss the hoary old chestnut of Visa Gossip & Rumours

Despite the passing of more than eight years since the video’s release, the situation remains unchanged – there still is a maelstrom of false information that permeates the foreign national community in Hong Kong when it comes to matters of immigration.

This is because there is a lacuna of official guiding information coming from the Immigration Department as their role is to simply inform and decide, not to advise. Moreover, many people tend to follow a general scenario-based approach without realizing that each immigration case is unique. It is important to understand that your experience with an immigration application may not necessarily apply to someone else’s. Relying on hearsay and rumors can lead to misinformation, which is why it is crucial to avoid falling into the trap of what I call “Visa Gossip & Rumors.”
