How Can My Chinese Girlfriend and I Create the Immigration Circumstances to Allow Us to Relocate to a New Life Together in Hong Kong?

Being a Chinese national resident on the Mainland makes it difficult to relocate to Hong Kong…



I’m a British and Australian citizen (dual nationality) living in Australia and I have a mainland Chinese girlfriend, presently living in China.

We wish to move to Hong Kong to live together and I want to start a technology business there.

I have about $300K HKD cash available and my Chinese girlfriend has probably four times that available too.

We both have investment assets that could be accessed fairly readily which are larger than the cash levels we have available.

My goal is that once I get the business legally registered and start operating, to generate enough revenue to then get into the Hong Kong science park and establish proper offices, start hiring, and grow the business etc.

How do we go about doing this in the best way possible?
