What will the Hong Kong Immigration Department make of a very early application for an extension to a business investment visa?


I am 6 months into my first 12 month stint of an investment employment visa

I am looking to move into a new apartment and the landlord is requesting a minimum of 12 months remaining on any visa.

Nothing has changed in my circumstances since my application was approved in March.

Am I allowed to apply for an extension to my current visa at this early stage and if so, should it be straight forward?
