Have been looking casually at plans to exit Hong Kong and a possibility popped up for my other half to be transferred to a much more attractive location, which may also be a better location for me job-wise, too.
Our situation: Oct. 2019 will get permanent residency. We're here under his work visa. Our current visa is about to expire and will pretty soon get renewed.
1. Would there be any way to pursue this job transfer possibility and yet still somehow get the permanent residency?
2. Would it be possible for me with a dependent visa to perhaps stay behind and keep working in HK until the end?
3. If I had a dependent visa and my spouse didn't, would it be possible for us to return to Hong Kong with my permanent residency and him with a dependent visa?
4. Has anyone heard of negotiating with their work to split the their time in two locations, so that they are here in Hong Kong a certain amount of time over the next year, but still working abroad some of the time?
I can't see how it could work, but man, the possibility is really good, so very interested to hear ideas.
