Can Elderly Parents Come to Live With Their Son Who Only Holds a Hong Kong Employment Visa?

if you hold a Hong Kong employment visa, bringing elderly parents to join you in Hong Kong is an area of immigration practice that is fraught with difficulty – as well as uncertainty. Dependant visas are, as a matter of policy, not available for non permanent residents yet it’s a scenario that presents itself all too frequently. This question provides an opportunity to discuss the visa possibilities in this situation.

    Hi Mr. Visa Geeza

    My 2 year contract ended prematurely due to COVID back in June 2020 with 1 year remaining on my work visa. My employer informed immigration.

    I now have a new job offer.
    Do I go down the ID990 / 991 route for transfer over of new employer?
    Can I still apply for a job that is initially a 3 month contract?

    Regards
    Mark
