My Employment Visa Expires Before My Change of Employer Application Will be Finalised – Help!

June 6th, 2012

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


It can be an administrative nightmare when you find yourself in such a state of limbo. However, if you have no need to leave Hong Kong pending the outcome of your change of sponsorship application, ImmD have a very practical solution – assuming you submit your application to change employers BEFORE your current limit of stay expires….



“First may I say thanks for this resource online. I am close to the end of a one year Hong Kong employment visa (07-06-12). I left my old company as a financial adviser 3 months ago and now have a new job offer for 22-06-12 as a property consultant. So I am changing jobs AND applying for an extension at the same time I believe? At least that’s what my new company has told me. I have a background in mortgages in Singapore so financial advice and estate agency are in the ballpark of my skill-set. I just need to know which mistakes not to make. Any help is gratefully received.”
