    Question Dependent Visa for my parents

    Hi,

    I want to keep my parents with me for 4-5 months as they are very lonely at the native country.

    Just wondering if i can apply for a dependent visa for them. Like to add that My father is not dependent on me for money and He is himself self-employed.

    Or is there any other way so that they can stay with me for 4-5 months.

    Please help. Its urgent.

    Thanks.

    Are you / your parents from Europe / EU country?
    Then it's not a big problem, they can enter the country as tourists and stay for a couple of months...

    If your are a Permanent Resident AND they are over 60 then yes. Otherwise no. See paras 40 & 41 of this document: http://www.immd.gov.hk/pdforms/id939a.pdf

    Yes, and then after living here for 7 years they could apply for a permanent HKID.

    Any person who is supposed to stay here more than 180 days must apply for HK I/C to avoid carrying passport all the time. It is free for first time. Do online booking beforehand to avoid long waiting time or missing quota at the immigration office.
