Hi all, hoping someone might have some insight on this. I'm a foreign national living and working in HK on my HKID. My partner is a Chinese national, with residency outside of China (he has never lived in China so has no proof of address, etc).
He has come to Hong Kong to visit me with visa on arrival, which for Chinese nationals is max 1 week (I believe pre-arrival visa is 2-weeks). We are hoping to have him stay a few weeks longer and were wondering if it would be possible for him to do a visa run to Shenzhen, effectively getting a new HK visa issued when he crosses back through the border? Are there Chinese people who live/work in HK and do the visa run once a week? We are assuming this is in some kind of bureaucratic grey area but don't want to attempt it in case he is unable to renter.
Thanks in advance.
