    Tourist visa extension - how many times?

    My dependant, who is Taiwanese currently living in Taiwan, will be coming shortly to HK as a visitor/tourist (no restrictions at the moment for visitors coming from Taiwan). Tourist visa for Taiwanese are given for 30 days and I would like to understand how many times can the tourist visa be extended? Has anyone here extended their tourist visa more than once?

    I have filed a dependant visa but it is currently not being processed as the request for additional evidence can't be mailed out due to WFH arrangements.

    I would not tempt fate and do the visit visa for a Taiwan national, with a dependant visa pending.

    Technically possible... But am really not sure how strict immd are being at the moment.

    Yes. Even more problematic if they are denied an extension?
