How does time spent living and working in China impact on your eligibility for the right of abode in Hong Kong?
QUESTION OF THE WEEK
I am a Canadian citizen. I worked and lived in Hong Kong from 2005 to 2007 and then was transferred to Shanghai by my employer which is a Hong Kong company.
I live and work in Shanghai now for the last 6 years but keep my Hong Kong employment visa and my Hong Kong ID card.
Can I apply for permanent residence?
Do I have a case for the 7 year continuous ordinary residence?
Thank you very much!
