    Australia should offer a PR on landing for any HKPR or HK passport holder if they want their statement to mean anything. US is only offering asylum which is stupid. Singapore Amos Yee went to US for asylum, he spent 18 months in jail in Chicago until it was awarded to him.
    The PR route to Australia is never offered on landing. You need to hold that PR visa before you leave. The fast track of few months comes with the condition of 5 million per head (not 1 dollar less) OR being an international expert in the application. I am not sure who would promise such a thing but predatory immigration consultancies and property agents would put that offer up. Especially with cash allowances for property under the first home buyer policy - that comes with another catch.

    To gain access to an Australian passport requires citizenship. Seven years in Australia, under certain visas including the PR, and passing the citizenship test are needed for citizenship. That or join the ADF.

    The Australian offer of extension actually appears like a way to weed out the poor from the wealthy HK students already present there. The extension requires health insurance which is pricey as heck. No entitlement to Medicare or the social welfare net.

    Caveat emptor.

    Is it worth it to fight from freedom and democracy? I guess you could ask the people from the former USSR. I'd say the majority of Romanians, Bulgarians, Czech, Slovaks and people from former Yugoslavia would say yes... Perhaps it would also just have been easier to let the Nazis win the second world war.

    The CCP in China stands for repression, corruption, censorship and autocracy. One can be a collaborator making money out of it or one can at least mitigate the damage... Very easy to see where some people stand.
