    Well that's a better rationale than my first thought, Grunt, which was who the duck does he think he is to hop in front of people who have been biding their time waiting, just because he feels he should.

    Not every Mainlander has to qeueu for 5 years. From what I have heard it depends on the number of applications from that specific province. Guangdong, Sichuan, Hunan 5 years since there are many applications from those provinces. but eg Heilungjiang 3 years.

    The bet dak is making is that his soon to be wife will be granted a hk dependent visa. The 150 queue is for the one way permit which allows mainland citizens to reunite with family, in this case, the spouse.

    The bet is on the dependent visa, anything else would be considered a loss.

    I have first hand experienced in this as I was the same situation but I guess dak knows more than me....

    1) I'll take that bet, up to $1000 HKD. No dependent visa for the PR&Mainlander

    2) BryanL described a scenario involving Canada. I personally know a couple who went thru the exact same routine but in Oz instead of Canada. He was PR and she was Guangxi resident.

    He's probably hiding from HC.
