A few things I was wondering some of you may know.
My wife (HK passport), myself (UK citizen + HK PR) and our 2 year old kid (HK passport, applying for UK one) are planning to leave HK and return back to the UK.
My original plan was to work until end of this year, quit job, move back to UK (can stay with parents for a few months) and look for a job back in the UK. Rationale is that I'm assuming that being back in the UK for an immediate start would be favourable. However, just seen that I need ~62K GBP or a guaranteed income of 18.5k+ to be able to get the spouse visa. Currently I have around 10K GBP in the UK but could pull together enough in HK. I also have the option of selling a property in the UK if necessary although that wouldn't be favourable.
1 - For the savings route, does that need to be sat in a UK account or HK account also applies?
2 - I'd also be interested to hear any forum other people's experiences of job hunting for UK roles whilst still in HK.
If it helps for context I'm a sales / client services manager for an information services company.
