    Forget this : it's technically possible but doing it every day is not realistic due how busy the border is now :notwithstanding you will have visa issues hindering you . It's expensive too . I do it because I don't have a choice . It's only me and a whole pile of construction workers that do this . I know all the regulars

    Are you PR, or do you run the risk?

    I did the daily trip back and forth to SZ for 3 years in one of my previous jobs, 2 chops in my passport daily, filling in the bloody forms, getting on and off the Yellow cross border bus, IT WAS NOT FUN.

    Lets ease that pain and hassle, why not share the warm embrace of the motherland by getting rid of that border. Don't you feel better without custom and immigration? What could possibly go wrong with that?

    Cough...sorry...I just took some brainwashing pills from watching the PLA boy scouts in HK.

    This may not be viewed quite the same way if you start in India!

    The indian community is quite well developed in Shenzhen and Guangzhou. Primarily trading companies and their employees.

    Unless you're a senior level recruit, your salary will most probably be factored for Shenzhen. I know a rather senior level executive from GeoExpat who had to commute to Shenzhen 4 or 5 days a week, simply because they can. Their company hired them in HK, arranged for all the paper work in China and had arranged for a car to drive them through (along with a couple of other senior people) the border. Not something most people can manage to pull off or enjoy.

    With an Indian passport and long term China visa, you'll have no problems entering HK on the weekends if and when you need to - crowds at the immigration lines may be a problem.
