    Seems like you are very very underpaid in that case.

    As horrible as it sounds, when it comes to Hong Kong immigration department, being from phillipines will also make things harder.

    Hope it works out for you, but I wouldn't be overly confident unless they increase the salary significantly.

    Those ones are at least being honest with you.

    Bottom line is regardless of qualifications (which seem to be very good), you need to earn in the region of $20k and if you are coming to teach English, you should be native level. As Joe also said, unfortunately your passport will be held against you in the eyes of the Immigration Department.

    Regarding flat share, I see posts from your fellow Filipinos looking to hire rooms out for 1500 - 2000 a month so if you do manage to get a visa then it shouldnt be a problem for you to get rent a room. Let me know if you need help in this when you get your visa approved.

    Good Luck.

    OP - do you have anything to lose?

    If not, give it a try and see how it goes.

    If you do not get the visa, tough luck...if you get it, come over work for a few months...and switch to a better paid job.

    No one here can tell you if you will get the visa....yeah yeah will all read that around the 20K mark is the usual but..there is no hard rule....so if you have nothing to lose, why not try.

    11K is low if you have to pay for accomodation and all but doable (4 K flat share for example - leaves you 7K which should be fine).

    Be aware tho, odds are against you...but if we were to stop each time odds are against us...we wouldnt go very far wouldnt we.

    Sure have a go. But at 11K, the employer is underpaying you. This is McD's wages.

    It's not enough. Don't come. You'll live a horrible life, eating awful food and not being able to enjoy life in a foreign country.
