The issue of fiances prior to marriage and how the Hong Kong Immigration Department treat them is often confused so I was happy to receive this question recently.
So, how are fiance’s prior to marriage treated by the Hong Kong Immigration Department?
My fiancé is a Philippine resident working in Hong Kong for the past 4 years. She met with a divorce lawyer and is filing for divorce from her Philippine husband. Will be uncontested. The lawyer from Hong Kong said the divorce will proceed faster if we show the court we filed for a fiancé visa and showed that to the court. Can we file for fiancé visa during the divorce process? I am an American citizen, spent a week there earlier in the year. I qualify on my end.
