Hong Kong visas for aged parents – the options for long stay visas for elderly parents of non-permanent residents here are quite limited…

QUESTION

Hi,

I’m married (Singaporean) and working for a major financial institution here in Hong Kong right now.

I have a working visa.

My mother 60 yrs old (Singaporean) has been living with us since March ’13, exiting every 3 months out of the country to renew her stay.

We would like to get her a long stay visa of some sort so we don’t have to worry about her getting stopped at immigration.

Could you please advise if there are any Hong Kong visas for aged parents that we could apply for, for her?

Thanks.

    Hi, I came across your podcast https://hongkongvisageeza.com/what-long-stay-hong-kong-visa-options-exist-for-elderly-parents-of-temporary-residents-here/

    Similarly to the lady who asked the question, I am a Singaporean as well and my husband is a Hong Kong Citizen (born and raised in HK). With the current visa rules and pandemic situation, are there any options for my husband to apply for any long-stay visa for his mother-in-law (ie my mother) aged 60+, or I have options to apply long-stay visa for my mother directly? (my mother wants to come despite the current pandemic in HK to take care of our newborn and me on postnatal)

    Thank you.

      She can’t be sponsored for a dependant visa until you qualify as a PR. In the meantime she can come as a visitor after May 1 2022 and then apply for extensions citing continuing temporary family reunion. ImmD should allow her to do this for up to 6 months in a year.
