    Yes, no problem in principle.

    When you get the new passport you can either get the visa transferred into the new one (for a fee) or simply carry both passports together.

    umm...I beg to differ.

    if ur passport has 10 months left, HK will not issue a 1 year WP. They will issue a 10 month WP. <from personal experience>

    I agree with Pushan. The immd often will give you a visa that does not go beyond your expiration date.

    Apply for 1 year.

    apply 1 year, no need to transfer just carry two passports together if you are travelling back to HK, I do that too.

    Since you did ask me the question, I will answer what Shri and sp1key have already mentioned.

    apply for 1 year.
    when you passport gets over and you get a new one, maybe you will need to apply for an extension of 2 months on ur WP, or apply for a fresh 2 year extension - I am not sure about this one yet as I have not reached that end-point.

    1-2 months before the existing visa expires, go apply for a 2 year visa. (If your contract allows) Check with your company.
