Kids grow up quickly so what happens to a Hong Kong dependant visa holder when she reaches the age of 18?
There are two parts to my question:
I’m here on a Hong Kong work visa and have been here for 15 months now. My daughter will be turning 18 yrs old in August 2015.
She attends an International school full time; she will be 19 when she finishes there.
Q1 – Will I just renew my daughter’s Hong Kong dependant visa when I renew my employment visa and also my wife’s Hong Kong dependant visa in November later this year or will she have to go a different route?
Q2 – She is considering going to university in the UK. If she does this will she be classed as a dependent and her home in Hong Kong and be classed as a Hong Kong resident with a Hong Kong ID card and will this count towards getting her 7 years for PR eventually?
