    HELP!! REJECTED Working Visa

    Hi all,

    Having waited for a month for my WORKING visa, I finally got a reply from the immigration department ... However, it got rejected ... saying that I do not meet the requirements... such as that I do not pose the special skills which are not readily available in HK etc etc

    Please can anyone help, I got told that if my employer was willing to offer me a training contract is that true that I can re-apply for a Training visa instead. I had done an internship before in wanchai at the end of last year, and was granted a training visa.

    Can anyone help me whether, I can do this again, for my current role, as a junior accountant. Im only hoping to stay in Hk for a year just to gain more practical experiences.

    Thanks

    What special skills are you claiming to bring to HK which wouldn't be possessed by a local 'junior accountant'?

    I have Passed all my ACCA exams, I just need to gain the practical experiences needed, to become a chartered. Therefore, my employer and I believed that we should have applied for the training visa instead of the working visa... is this right?? But can I re-apply after the working visa got declined ?

    Im sure there are plenty of entry level ACCA qualified locals over here, why should you take a job ahead of them?

    This is what you need to convince immigration.
