    Im not really assuming that i'll get the visa because i know that hongkong immigration is the higher boss ??... and at back of my mind im really bothered by it because im from the phil. And u know how it is in this country when it comes to processing...

    And if by some miracle the hk immigration granted me a visa.. it would really be a stepping stone for me to apply in aany other company.

    And if gets rejected due to salary reasons well im hoping that the company would reapply and make my salary higher ??????

    2nd i dont really intend in going to hk without a working permit.. nor do i intend to go there as a tourist then find a job... it's too risky and i dont want this to be the reason why i am banned or deported in a foreign country...

    Just to let you know, a work visa only entitles you to work for the company who employed you. You wouldn't then be free to seek another job as you please.

    They didnt really specify if they were able to hire filipinos before they just said 'overseas'... their center actually focused on math but this year they opened an english program to balance out their math program

    You could 'seek' for another job but you just couldn't take up legal employment until you officially transferred your working visa to your new employer.

    This is a warning sign in my book. I would follow up and ask specifically if they have been able to legally hire Filipino teachers (or any SE Asians actually) previously (especially at your salary level). There is a real risk that your application will be rejected and that would stand against you for any future visa applications.

    Yes it pays a lot more, but the cost of living is so much more. I would go for the experience and for your CV/resume. Don't expect to be a lot better off than if you stayed at home though. A helper gets paid around HKD4000 but they don't have to pay for accommodation, food or bills or transport to and from work. As others have said though what do you have to lose?
