I'll be eligible to apply for my HKPR very soon.
Just a few quick questions for those who have gone through the process recently -
My 1st employment visa was issued on 6 June 2013; my 1st date of arrival to HK was 26 June 2013, starting my employment on the 1st week of July.
Is my 7 year anniversary based on the 6th or 26th?
Assuming my 7 year anniversary (based on date of entry) is 26 June 2020 - when is the earliest I can submit my application (online)?
I've seen on this forum somewhere:
- if you apply for PR more than 28 days before your 7 year anniversary, immigration will just send the papers back
- 28 days before the 7 year anniversary; but you must be physically present in HK on the day you submit and also on the 7 year anniversary day
So does this mean I can apply on 29 May 2020 online?
I've called the immigration hotline to check and the guy said - just wait for the 7 year mark then apply (you can tell I'm keen to get my HKPR asap!).
As per the online application, required documents are passport/visa/HKID copies.
I've seen a lot of people submit tax receipts and lease agreements - are these recommended but not mandatory?
Thanks in advance to those who contribute!
