    Exclamation Work in hong kong for a malaysian gradudate studying in HK

    Excuse me, my girlfriend is a malaysian studying hotel and tourism in one of universities in hong kong...she would be graduated this year and she want to work in hong kong's hotel as a front officer after graduation. However, we know that a working visa is definitely required.We would be separated if she cannot stay and work here.Would anyone tell me the chance for her to work in hk , please?? or anyone can help us ?Many thanks!!

    Unless your status can help her, the best strategy I can come up with, is hunting at all the hotels for a training program and secure a 1 year training visa on back of her study period. She can then push for building it out to a real employment visa. I think chances of a real employment visa are initially very slim, and regardless, this is not gonna be easy. Also obviously, don't expect any good $$ to roll in for a long time, coz any employer will take advantage of the situation.

    Garydog,

    I think she can stay for a year. This needs checking but didn't the HKSAR government make some changes to allow university graduates to stay for an extra year?

    I am not really sure of what I speak but I thought read that in SCMP?

    Well, it's been two and a half years since the original post... perhaps she's found something by now.

    You are quite correct. Details on the Immigration site here.

    PLEASE can you implement the "You are replying to a thread which was last active more than 6 months ago. Are you sure your comment is still relevant?" idea?

    Too funny. I just caught Denyo's post of today and was in a rush but knew I'd read this before. As this is a new situation, his g/f was SOL at that time.
