Thanks for all the comments! wished I had HKD10mn to go for CIES
One follow up question, so my current visa expires in March 2013 and I complete 7 year in Sept. 2013. If I can get a local company to sponsor my work visa...will I get 'new' work visa starting now or, will immigration authorities just change my employment detail at this point and extend my visa only when it expires (i.e. start of next year)?
