Can I Lawfully Rent an Apartment in Hong Kong as a Frequent Visitor – What Would the Immigration Department Make of That?
Posted in The Hong Kong Visa Geeza, Visitor Visas, Your Question Answered /
If you find yourself often in Hong Kong as a frequent Visitor is it lawful and / or possible to rent an apartment in order to keep accommodation expenses down…
I’m an Expat based in Thailand & often come to Hong Kong for meetings or transit for business trips to China, Taiwan, Korea and Japan.
Let’s say roughly 10-14 days a month, with an average of 2-3 entries.
Since hotel costs are ticking up & I can’t leave documents in a safe place, I’m considering renting a 850 sqf apartment in Wanchai.
Would this be a problem for Immigration?
