Relocating to Hong Kong For Work or Business – The Visitor Visa
Posted in Employment Visas, Family Visas, Investment Visas, Long Stay & PR, Musing, Refusals & Appeals, Special Programmes, The Hong Kong Visa Geeza, Visitor Visas /
On June 13 I was invited to address the 2013 Monaco Trade Delegation to Hong Kong & China on the question of visas to live and work in Hong Kong.
The Delegation was hosted by my good friends at Rosemont Hong Kong and I covered in a total of 50 minutes the whole sweep of employment and investment based visas as well as the question of permanent residency here eventually.
I have broken the talk down in 12 bite sized chunks under the following headings:
The Visitor Visa
Job Offer Based Employment Visa
Business Investment Visa Cash Required & Catch 22
Capital Investment Visa
Visas for Accompanying Family
