I just arrived in HK two weeks ago, and I want to get a credit card asap because it makes life more convenient (signing up an IDD monthly plan etc). However, almost all applications require a bank monthly statement with three months' salaries, or latest month payroll slip, or other asset proof. I wonder if it is ok to use a printed electronic monthly statement issued by US banks as the asset proof. I know they don't accept it as the address proof when I tried to open a bank account. I do have an HSBC(HK) account. Is it easier to apply at one of their branches?
