I am trying to withdraw my MPF balance from HSBC as I left in 2014, they told me among other things :
"Please be advised that a statutory declaration can be made at public enquiry centers of the Home Affairs Department in Hong Kong. If you are residing overseas, you may make the statutory declaration outside Hong Kong provided that the declaration is made beforehand and signed by a Notary Public or a person authorized under the law of that place to administer an oath or take a statutory declaration. "
Anyone went through this? is the statuary declaration really necessary? can I do it in Europe.
I dont understand what is meant by beforehand? do they mean in presence of a public notary?
