I currently, I have a training visa which is restricted to 6 months (expires in June) without the possibility of an extension or a subsequent transfer to an employment visa.
Now my company would really want me to stay as I surpassed their expectation, but unfortunately due to the above mentioned reasons its not possible (now) as I'm on a training visa and the purpose of a training visa is that I take the experience that I gained in HK back to my home country.
But I'd like to ask you guys what if I go back to my country for six months and then apply for a normal employment visa for 2021, then it wouldn’t be considered a transfer and I would have “applied” my knowledge that I’ve received in HK during that period in my home country (which is the purpose of a training visa).
I would really appreciate your thoughts on what my chances are for a successful application for 2021 as well as if you think going back for 6 month is sufficient.

It's my biggest wish to come back next year.
Thanks so much and best regards,
