How to skin the cat of the ‘missing tenancy agreement’ is an oft-faced challenge in the game of the Hong Kong Right of Abode Application after 7 years continuous ordinary residence by a foreign national intending permanent resident.
What happens if I am unable to provide copies of my tenancy agreements in support of my Hong Kong permanent residency application?
I never thought I would still be here for 7 years so I every 2 years I get rid of old documents ie, bank statements, tenancy agreements, utilities etc.
Also for years 3-7 I was living with my ex partner so the tenancy agreement was in her name or her employer’s name.
What can I do? Will utility bills be enough?
