How Long Should You Wait After a Rejected Hong Kong Employment Visa Application Before Trying Again?

December 14th, 2020

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


Is there a ‘minimum waiting time’ between a rejected Hong Kong employment visa application and  then ‘trying again’?


I have a visa question, I got an offer from a recruitment company in July, they applied the working visa for me, but it got rejected by the end of August.

Now I have a new offer from another recruitment company, they will try to apply the visa for me, if they phrase my qualification better this time, is that possible to be approved?

Is it a good idea to apply again within 6 months?  

Will my first, rejected Hong Kong  employment visa application be a problem the second time around?
