So what options are available to Hong Kong dependant visa holding foreign nationals when their spouses are leaving Hong Kong and they want to stay?
QUESTION OF THE WEEK
I am here on a Hong Kong dependent visa with my husband.
He is planning to leave his employment in Hong Kong and return to his home country but I am thinking of staying for a couple more years.
What happens with my dependent visa (limit of stay expires in the middle of 2016) when he quits his job and leaves Hong Kong next month?
Can I, too, use my consents to reside in Hong Kong even though only via a dependent visa to look for an employer to then change my visa status?
