Which is Better – Change of Hong Kong Employment Visa Sponsorship or Seeking to Swap Over to a QMAS Visa Instead?

September 30th, 2013

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


If I had to choose between applying for a QMAS visa or otherwise seek to change my employment visa sponsorship to carry on working in Hong Kong, I know what I’d do (hands down, no doubt about it) …



I have been in Hong Kong for the past 2 years under a sponsored employment visa and I am permitted to stay until 2015.

Is it worth applying for the Quality Migrant Admission Scheme (cos I’m sure even if I move my job my new employer will sponsor me?)
