    How many times does it take to get.........

    DEPORTED!!!!!

    i noticed on my past visit that you get 90 days in HK without a VISA.

    I also happened to notice that on each re-entry from china, i was stamped with a new current date and a new 90 days.

    that meant that although i was there for a 2 weeks, because i left into china, and returned to HK, they were giving me a new set of 90 days.

    now i did this twice...and they didnt say anything,

    how many times can i do this before getting in trouble or being forced to return to the states?

    i have a US passport.

    I don't think that US passport holder will have any problems with this.

    Exactly as Chilli says.

    Eventually, they will catch on that you're abusing the system. Have had friends who have been warned on the 3rd or 4th visit and have had to return to the US / leave Hong Kong for longish periods to be able to restart the cycle.

    Eventually, yes. Given that you're not a HK resident.
