    Applying for HK work permit -- Which way is faster?

    Hi, I have been offered a job in HK, the starting date is July. I just received the letter of appointment today. Now I need to apply for work Visa, I am currently residing in the US. It seems to me there are 3 ways to go about doing things

    1.) Apply the work permit through my company: fill up the forms and send them back the the HR person. My company will collect the permit label for me.

    2.) Apply the work permit by myself: fill up the forms and send them to the HK Immigration office. HK Immigration office will mail me the permit label.

    3.) Go to HK with visitor Visa (can stay up to 90 days), apply the permit in person. Once I received the permit, go to Macao and reenter HK.

    Which way is the fastest? I am flexible in terms of travel and I really want to start the job in July.
