I have a few questions about marriage in HK.
I am a Filipino and my girlfriend is a UK citizen and a HK permanent resident. Right now, I live in the Philippines and she lives in the UK. We plan to get married in HK so that her relatives can attend the civil ceremony. After that, we plan to move to the Philippines, and then in a few month, move to the UK.
First question, do I need to get a visa before entering HK for the purpose of marriage? Or, can I just get a tourist visa at the HK airport? If I go the tourist visa route, when the immigration officer at the airport ask me what my purpose for visiting HK is, is it an acceptable reason to say I am entering HK to get married or should I not mention that fact and say instead I am just a tourist? Will this cause me problems later?
