A relatively straightforward answer to, what can be, quite a complex question dealing with ‘Hong-Kong-immigration status-by-descent’ for foreign nationals born in the HKSAR.
I was born in Hong Kong (I am a British passport holder and of British parents). I do not have ***.
My daughter was born in the US and has a US passport and a British passport. We have lived back in Hong Kong since 2010 and she has had a visa for school. She was born in 2003.
Does she need to spend 7 continuous years here in HK or can I apply for permanent residency for her because I was born here?
