“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!”
