Ok, I'm born in Holland and 26 years old. At the time of my birth my father and mother were HK permanent residents (and still are), but live now in Europe.
I've heard,and confirmed by the immigration department I'm entitled for residency (the kind were if you leave HK for more then 3 years, this residency cancels and you have to apply again. How is it called BTW?).
I've heard from some friends who are in the same situation that they got their applications refused for some reason. The immigration officers told me it was possible. So isnt this just a yes or no question. I'm very confused.
I went to Wanchai myself to sort this out: the first officer told me I had to give them a copy of my fathers HK ID card and my birth certificate. Upon talking with an other officer he told me I had to have the marriage and divorce papers of my parents. They were divorced in Europe so the papers are not even in English. Why do they need these divorce papers what has that to do with my right to residency? Why do two officers ask for different papers?
Anyway a lot of questions I know. I am entitled to residency but how can I get it? And how can they refuse some people who are entitled to it?
