Down the years a great many foreign nationals arrive in Hong Kong as visitors ‘on spec’ and are able to successfully change their immigration status in order for them to take up employment when a job offer manifests itself here. This question discusses this very issue and provides the answer that a lot of people are asking about.
“Hi Stephen, Thanks for getting back to me on Twitter (@xxxxxx). Basically, my partner has been offered a teaching post, to commence mid-August 2012, so she should be able to get her visa fine. We are engaged but weren’t planning on getting married any time soon. I am currently a Senior HR Manager in the US and would like to pick up the same job in Hong Kong, however I will have to enter on a visitors visa and I am worried about being seen looking for recruitment as I know they don’t like it. If I do this, what happens if I get a job offer? Can I leave to Macau to then come back into the country?”
