Many employment visa applicants and the companies which want to hire them struggle with the question of what’s the minimum salary for visa approval?

The answer is quite easy really:

- The target should be two hundred thousand hong kong dollars each year

- This is the total value of the employment not just the amount of salary paid

- So you can break it down into different heads of value

- As long as it comes to about 200,000 hong kong dollars then the essential minimum will be met

 But bear in mind this is just the minimum

The more you get paid the easier it is to get approved!
