    Also, what tax do I have to pay for building a village house
    minimium 6-7 years.

    in your case, 7 years to wait until you can apply pernament residency, during that time you can change land deeds from your father to your name, after that obtain hk id card, you can start applying,

    first 6 months, chartered land surveyor to measure the plot, within first 2 years, your village chief or the chairman of the rural committee to verify that your offspring of 3 generation of your family as indigenous hk person, submit the initial planning permission to HK gov land department...., pay stamp duty for the land.... it's a long winded process.

    I also have an application in for 8 years already, my uncle's application has been outstanding for 15 years. I knew an old guy in my village who literally died whilst waiting for approval.
    which village and which area, my mate in Lam Tsuen took around 9 years, but my other mate in village a mile outside sheung shui around 7 years, my village is in sha tau kok, ma tsuek ling, more remote quicker to process in general

    Thanks for the breakdown, at which stage do I have to assign a contractor to start with the design/construction? and at what stage do I have to have the money (I assume full amount) prepared?

    In your case, probably around 12 -13 years time, as you can't apply if you're on a visa, need to apply residency in HK first, that's after the first 7 years of living in HK, just wondering, have you ever applied for right to land status from HK immigration after all, you are offspring of indigenous HK people?
