Hi geo expatters
Got a question with regards to visiting Hong Kong whilst applying for an employment visa.
Is it possible for a British national currently living outside of Hong Kong, who obtains a job offer to work in Hong Kong and applies for an employment visa before entering Hong Kong, to enter Hong Kong as a visitor (being british visa free) then change the immigration status to an employment visa upon it being granted by the immigration dept. ?
The person wouldn't be working prior to the employment visa being granted but want to know if its OK to visit and stay in hong kong while the application is in progress
