Hi, does anyone know whether there is a difference (or any drawbacks) of opening a bank account, getting a mobile phone account, etc...on a working visa vs. on a HK permanent ID? Does having a work visa generally present more paperwork or necessary documentation?
I'll be on a work visa, but am also in the process of applying for my HKID card. Although once I arrive, it will still be a few weeks before my ID card will be issued and I would like to get the bank account, mobile phone and other such personal effects taken care of as soon as I arrive.
Any insights on this? Thank You.
