Lots of visa gossip and rumours in Hong Kong and we can safely add the following question to that bucket…
QUESTION OF THE WEEK
Processing a Hong Kong work visa application…
At the time when a Hong Kong visa agent submits an employment visa application on my behalf, is it then in fact considered problematic by Immigration that I’m already in Hong Kong on a visitor visa?
Will it make my case better to stay in my home country until the application has been submitted?
I have heard many divergent opinions on this.
For example to better be out of Hong Kong and not enter till after a minimum of 48 hours after submitting.
Please help me with your expert advice.
