    Does your HO understand that this isn't some third world failed state and that people can and do go to jail here for some of the things they are proposing?

    imshah, not sure if you saw in the paper this morning but a Filipina who attempted a visa run over to Macau was refused re-entry and is now stuck there.

    You have a work visa pending and you are about to try a tourist visa run by the sound of it.....Immigration aren't stupid and this will come back to haunt you, the 'employee' and perhaps even the company (or at least its 'officers').

    The article is in today's SCMP, page A3 about Filipinos coming here to visit agencies promising jobs in Europe/Canada ending up out of money with fake documents. A basic job scam.

    "One worker whose visa expired on December 1 was stranded in Macau after she went there for the day hoping for a renewal on return and was refused re-entry."

    No one is guaranteed a 'tourist visa'.

    seriously on the one hand your company seems quite professional having an HO and your office here being a branch office.
    but on the other hand you seem quite unprofessional bringing in a tourist visa holder to work in your company and then do the visa run in Macau.

    seriously what sort of an operation are you running...?
    it is ILLEGAL for a tourist visa to be working and it is ILLEGAL for a company to hire those without valid working visas. They will be deported out and your company and ppl in charge will face jail time...
    Geoexpaters will not be able to help you find a lawyer as no one would want to represent a dead case...

    Be smart don't break the law...

    No-one except Hong Kong Permanent Residents have an absolute right of entry to HK. There are no guaranteed "visas on arrival" - it is always at the absolute discretion of the immigration officer to whom you present yourself on arrival. If they have reason to suspect that you will not abide by the terms of your visa then they can simply turn you away. This happens hundreds, if not thousands, of times each year.

    But Immd will not comment on individual cases, so we are unable to estimate probabilities on it happening for an particular person.
