After studying http://legalref.judiciary.gov.hk for the last few hours, I have read that quite a few people have failed their Dependant Visa applications.
In their Affidavits, the people have stated that they are married to a Hong Kong person and intend to eventually work. In most cases the person stated their potential plans and all failed. The judgment by the director clearly stated that working may not form any part of the objective, and the Dependency visa can only be granted if the primary objective for staying in Hong Kong is to take the natural niche of a family and remain Dependant by the sponsor.
Other people have failed because their was not enough money as support on $13,000HKD/month. I would have thought this is quite a lot.
Did any applicant on this forum write an Affidavit? I have not read anyone's post on this forum who has written a statement of why they wish to move to hong kong. I'm assuming the Sponsor needs to write an affidavit stating that they will fully support the applicant.
My sample Affidavit goes like this:
I have not made mention of work or business. These people on http://legalref.judiciary.gov.hk unnecessarily incriminated themselves.I hereby declare my application for a Dependant visa. I wish to remain in Hong Kong to start a family and to continue our married relationship. My wife XXXX will support me and I will remain Dependant on her in Hong Kong.
I am now paranoid after reading all these cases. My fiancee has been living with me overseas for 2 years, though we will move to Hong Kong in December and be married on 24/12/2006. Her uncle will write an employment letter (offer letter) as he owns 2 businesses in Tsim Sha Tsui.
I have investigated and require the supporting documentation:
1) A photocopy of my passport main page, and visa stamp page
2) Letter of support from wife stating she will provide everything for me.
3) Overseas Joint-Bank statements 2 years. Around $300,000HKD
4) Photocopy of the wife's Hong Kong ID card
5) Letter of employment (sponsor)
6) House contract - She shares joint ownership of her flat in Tuen Mun with her parents having her name on the ownership agreement.
7) Marriage contract
8) Wedding pictures, and many others in Sydney, Canberra, Guangzhou, many full family pictures
9) Previous shared air-fare tickets to Hong Kong
10) Overseas rental agreements to show relationship
