Stephen followed through my case for around ten months and managed everything

“My situation was complicated.

I only had a month to go until I qualified for the right of abode after 7 years , but then had to leave Hong Kong as my husband was sent on secondment to Latin America. It seemed I was going to miss out by just a few weeks after being in Hong Kong all those years.

Stephen helped me apply for PR one month before the due date, the day before we left Hong Kong and amazingly I received the confirmation letter that I had achieved PR a few months later!

I had always planned to come back for a trip around six months later and, after Stephen had managed things with immigration in the interim, he arranged my interview when I was back and I am now a proud HK permanent resident!

There is no way I could have done this on my own. The Platinum fee was great value for money as Stephen followed through my case for around ten months and managed everything: advising on documents, developing the argument , completing all the forms and corresponding with immigration all throughout that time.

He’s even organised someone to pick up my smartID card and send it to me in South America as I can’t even stay long enough for that to be ready!

Everyone is very impressed that I have managed to get my PR!

Many thanks Hong Kong Visa Centre!”

Eager to offer the best solution to my business investment visa quandary

My experience with Stephen Barnes and the Hong Kong Visa Centre was easier than I had imagined.

He gave clear and concise advice and was eager to offer the best solution to my business investment visa quandary whether that option meant income for his firm or not.

With his service, I endured the minimum possible amount of work while getting a successful result in about half the time that was originally estimated by other visa consultants in Hong Kong

Worth every penny, and then some

“Special thanks to Stephen Barnes, our visa consultant. He has been worth every penny, and then some.”

“Stephen was perhaps the most professional person I have worked with, ever.

Never have I seen someone juggle so many different pieces of information and stay on top of things and in touch with the client as well as he did.

When I was in college I often felt as though the professors were unaware that we were taking any class but their own, based on the amount of homework we were assigned.

With Stephen I couldn’t understand how he could be working with any other clients, given how much attention he was giving us.

As the complexity of the paperwork grew and we went through multiple submissions of information, my wife and I many times commented on how glad we were to not have tried to do it ourselves. ”

Stephen and his team were there every step of the way for me – no question was too trivial

“I approached Stephen after I had taken a challenging change in career direction, needing some pretty critical advice on visas. Not only did I find Stephen to be a fountain of knowledge, his advice was practical, relevant and realistic. Stephen and his team were there every step of the way for me; no question was too trivial. He is incredibly responsive and goes above and beyond the call of duty, always. I would wholeheartedly recommend Stephen and the HK Visa Centre to anyone in need of help with the complex HK visa system”

I think you are “the” authority on this topic…

“When I contacted the Hong Kong Visa Centre I was looking to decide if I should file for a dependant visa or wait until my wife finds a full time job.

I choose to reach out to you because, after studying all the material on your site, I couldn’t establish if I should file yet or not. But clearly you are knowledgeable and familiar with Hong Kong immigration.

And honestly, there didn’t seem to be another provider willing to help a “small potato” like me answer this sort of question without it costing a lot of money.

I was really pleased with your response as we previously went through the American K1 fiancé visa process (for my wife) on our own, without any professional help.

But in taking a similar approach to a Hong Kong Dependant Visa, I couldn’t establish what “works” in Hong Kong.

I was able to navigate the American immigration process successfully because I could study lots of peoples experiences on the internet, see what worked for people, and what didn’t, and “reverse engineer” the process.

In Hong Kong however, either not many people with our circumstances are applying or those that do don’t write up their approach/success/failure stories in enough quantity for me to figure out what works and what doesn’t.

After finding and reading through your website, I think you are “the” authority on the this topic…. at the very least the only one who is willing to share your experiences and knowledge so generously.

I was pleased with your answer because I can go ahead and start the application process, rather than holding off for an unknown period of time.

My wife and I recommend you to anyone who wants a Hong Kong visa!”

If you need straightforward, honest and useful advice, this is the place to come

“ I emailed for advice, as I was having trouble with the Immigration Department and my accountants were dropping dark hints about prosecution and possible expulsion.

I thought I’d just get a standard reply but within an hour Stephen called me, gave me advice on what I should do and greatly reassured me about the situation.

I did what he suggested and just over a week later the problem was resolved – and all of that advice was free!

I can’t recommend him highly enough: if you need straightforward, honest and useful advice, this is the place to come.”
