I’ve been given a opportunity to leave HK 5 years and 2 months into my continuous service. The relocation time limit is relatively flexibile , meaning I could work part time between both countries for a year or two while remaining HK domicile to achieve the continuous 7 years.
Looking into the HK legistrstion it seems unclear on this matter, using the term “ordinally resident” to describe the persons requirement to be in Hong Kong for 7 years to earn the right to abode.
I’ve not found any further restrictions to this matter however , like the UK, I presume there would be a maximum days allowed outside of HK per calendar year?
In a ideal scenario I would like to work the remaining year in HK, with a few short visits to NY (<10 days) , and next year work on a 50/50 basis between the two. Appreciate 50/50 may be to much to achieve continuous status but I can’t find a clear government statement that confirms this.
Any help appreciated
