I'll be moving in July and I have some questions. I read the forums but I just want to make sure I got everything right.
1. Opening a Bank Account for US citizens
From what I can understand I would need a passport, my Driver license, employment contract, and 3 months of old utilities bills from the States. I am planing to just open an basic saving account first so I can receive my salary and do basic stuff. Also what is the least amount i need to have to open an account. Will the banks be able to exchange USD to HK dollars so I can deposit some?
2. Prepaid Sim with Data/Voice
This, I can't seem to find any info on. I need a prepaid sim with both voice and data (I feel lost without google maps). Is there any carrier that offer this without HKID or HK address? Also does the airport sell prepaid sim at night(arriving late 7-8pm)?
3. Suit Color for Work
Is it ok to wear a light grey suit to work in HK. I know this sounds stupid but I rarely see a businessman in Asia wear any other color than Black or charcoal. I just don't want to stick out like a sore thumb.
4. Need to carry Passport ALL the TIME
From what I understand I'll need to carry one or else I'd be arrested and fined. Can I instead carry a photocopy or a have a photo of it on my Phone? I take daily runs and I really don't want my ID or passport falling out of my wallet.
5. Rental Deposit
I heard I need to bring 2 month deposit 1 month rent plus half a month rental for agent fee. Is this correct? I never heard of paying agent fee unless I am the one who is renting out the place. I always though agents get commission from the landlord.
