Any chance the Immigration Department will grant you an interim Hong Kong employment visa extension in these circumstances?
I am an Australian national living in Hong Kong under an employment visa since December 2010, all sponsored by the same company.
This has been an Australian company with a representative office in Hong Kong.
I have over 20 years experience in hi-tech, with experience in mainland China manufacturing.
My current employment visa is due to expire on December 10, 2014.
My employer made a decision to close the Asia office in June 2014. They did not inform Immigration of this and I was not sure if I should have to do so in their absence to act.
I wish to stay in Hong Kong longer and continue trying to find a job.
If my current visa lapses before a change of sponsorship application can be filed, will this cause problems for me with ImmD in the case of finding a new sponsor?
Is there a way to get an interim Hong Kong employment visa extension for an additional 3-6 months to allow me to stay longer while continuing to search for a job?
