I have an unusual immigration question regarding re-gaining permanent residency in HK and I hope someone can help me answer my question. Thank you all so much.
I am born in Australia but I grew up in Hong Kong for about 17 years and left Hong Kong around 1994 to attend University in the US and I have lived and worked there ever since. At this moment I am interested to move back to Hong Kong and I was wondering given the following situation below if I can be eligible to re-claim permanent residency in HK. Is it possible? Procedure?
1) I have an old permanent HK ID card issued prior to the changeover which expired around 1994.
2) I attended primary and secondary school in HK and my parents (both Non-Chinese and "not born in HK" hold permanent residency in HK). I do speak Cantonese fluently. I am 32 years old and married.
I would appreciate any advice.
