My girlfriend's employer closed down the HK office on Dec 31 and hence my girlfriend (Singaporean) lost her job (she got her work visa and HKID in Nov 07). The company she worked for is still registered (in HK) though for tax reasons.
1) Would the Immigration Department find out that my girlfriend doesn't work anymore (given that the company is still registered)?
2) What's the official procedure? Does she need to leave HK and return her HKID? Currently she is looking for a new job.
3) If she does need to leave: Can she just go to Shenzhen and return on a tourist visa and then look for a new job?
4) Should we call Immigration and just be plainly honest about the situation or would they immediately turn around ask her to return the HKID?
