Does a simple trip to ‘city hall’ solve all your Hong Kong dependant visa problems?
QUESTION OF THE WEEK
I am American. I have just accepted a role in Hong Kong.
My employer is about to begin my visa paperwork to sponsor me for an employment visa.
However, my girlfriend is Australian and I want her to come with me and ideally also be able to work.
We are both 30 almost 31.
One option is a shot gun marriage here in the US.
However, I was wondering what the policy is on her coming to Hong Kong on a tourist/holiday visa and once in Hong Kong with me us getting married there?
Is that possible and if so once it has been performed can I get her added onto my visa as a spouse easily enough?
Any advice is greatly received.
