I am not an expat. I am Chinese, born in Hong Kong.

I have a same sex partner. We have been in a long distance relationship for 7 years.

 She got denied entry back in 2008 because we did a number of short trips in order to let her stay longer than her visa free 14 days.

 I have read from your website about successful cases to apply for a dependent visa for same sex partners accompanying expats.

 I am wondering if this is possible for locals too?

 Any info provided will be much appreciated.
