Fresh Graduates, Working Holiday Visas & the Chances of a Hong Kong Employment Visa Subsequently

May 21st, 2022

Posted in Employment Visas, The Hong Kong Visa Geeza, Your Question Answered /


Chances of a Hong Kong employment visa? Is it feasible to come to Hong Kong on a working holiday visa and then swap to an employment visa subsequently?


Yes but…


Hi. I would like to go work in Hong Kong (I am Australian and have just finished my business degree).

Just wondering if I should arrive in Hong Kong with a 90 day visitor visa or a 1 year working holiday visa to start my job hunt.

I’ve tried searching online with no luck so far.

Your advice would be greatly appreciated.

I would like to work and live in Hong Kong and eventually attain PR as I really like the culture and environment there.

Thank you!
