    The only way as a Singaporean that you will get Permanent Residence in HK is to reside in HK on some other type of visa (Employment, Investment, Study, etc) for 7 years.

    You have to find the job first - there is no such thing as a "residence visa". You either have to be employed in a job that Immigration approves for an Employment visa, or be studying, or invest around US$1M.

    Yes, but you need to find a job for which your employer is happy to sponsor you for an Employment Visa and for which Immigration will grant one. This means that you must have some particular skill or experience not readily available from amongst existing HK permanent residents.

    Hi, which means i wont be able to find jobs that dont require "talent" and so wont be able to get a working visa?

    my motive was to be able to reside in hong kong to stay and to work there without the limitation(90days visitor visa for singaporean).

    Having a specifc talent is a great advantage to get residentship visa in hong kong.. but first you must have a sponsor(employer) who is willing to help you..
