Is it ever legal to work in Hong Kong – especially on a short term basis – without the permission of the Director of Immigration?
QUESTION OF THE WEEK
I am a UK based one person limited company and have been asked by a major financial services company with a business based in Hong Kong to undertake 10 ~ 15 days consulting work there as a one-off exercise.
I will not be setting up business in Hong Kong and will return to the UK at the end of the visit.
Can I do this work under the visitor visa and do I need anything additional such as a work permit?
