I've been reading a LOT of posts and I have to say your forum is the best out there information-wise. Congrats to all of you!!
On my side, I'd like to know if any member have experience with setting up a branch or rep office for a foreign incorporated company (US). I've been on the InvestHK website and I'm still waiting for their reply, but basically my situation is the following:
-My job will consist in opening the HK branch of the US company to provide tech support to the Asian region - Am I right to assume that my case does not fit under "investment visa"?
-Position would involve intensive travelling all over Asia for training and tech support duty calls - How many times can I re-enter HK under a Business Visa (Thinking about taking a Business Visa at the begining, to investigate options)?
-Once the business entity(branch/rep office) is setup, I could then apply for employment visa (Sponsorship). Anybody who's been through this process before?
-I also read few posts about "Directors" of company that do not need a work visa.. Any comments about this?? Maybe it would work for my case since I'm only providing consulting services and could be paid on my US account...
If you have any insights about my situation or just want to comment my assumptions, I look forward to hearing it!!
