My wife obtained her HK visa through me and I currently hold the visa under the Quality Migrant Admission Scheme. Both of us now reside in the United States and do not intend to come back to Hong Kong for purpose other than renewing our visas. However, both of us would like to keep our Hong Kong visa status for personal reasons.
Now, my visa will expire sometime next year and I intend to go back for the renewal. My wife's visa will expire in a month--however since she is not pregnant, it will be very inconvenient for her to travel back to HK. The hotline answer I received from the IMMD is that we cannot renew the visa without being personally there--if my wife cannot travel back, her visa will expire.
We really do not want this to happen but have not been able to find a solution.
Any suggestions? Thank you so much!
