DATE FOR YOUR DIARY: Thinking of Applying for PR for Hong Kong? Do It For Free! – Public Talk by Stephen Barnes on Thursday, 23rd January 2014 in Wanchai

January 18th, 2014

Posted in Long Stay & PR, Musing, The Hong Kong Visa Geeza /


If  you have lived in Hong Kong continuously for the last seven years (or will have completed a full seven years in the next few months), then you won’t want to miss the talk I am giving on this very subject at  Centre O  in Wanchai on Thursday, January 23 2014 in Wanchai  (7 pm kick off).

This is a free session (i.e. no $$ required) and a great opportunity to learn all about how to get a right of abode application approved with a minimum of fuss, stress and mixed-up paperwork!

The cut and thrust of my presentation will be on how to go about applying for – and getting approved – an application for a  Hong Kong Permanent Identity Card without the need to engage any professional help.

That’s right – how to get Permanent Residency in Hong Kong, for free!

My presentation is only 17 minutes long, but the session is designed to be ongoing Q&A interactive in a very cosy atmosphere so expect to be engaged for about 90 minutes, eating drinking and networking with no more than 20 others.

Only 20 slots available!

The session has proven very popular in the past with all slots being taken up quickly so please RSVP to Josephine ASAP and reserve your place if you wish to attend next week.

I’m going to be on hand to answer any questions you have about your own PR situation, and will stick around after the session for as long as it takes to talk to you all.

Josephine provides an excellent service at Centre O (we are a client too) and goes out of her way to take care of her customers and guests.

There’ll be lots of wine on hand for the session, some great food and an excellent, convivial atmosphere.

While you’re there you can also check out her excellent facilities too.

In the meantime, have a look at our 10 Must Have Resources for a Successful Permanent Residency Application, attend the talk, then pick my brains for all they’re worth!

See you next Thursday!
