How to Apply For a Hong Kong Investment Visa Without Paying for Professional Help – 10 – The Catch 22

January 29th, 2015

Posted in Investment Visas, Musing, The Hong Kong Visa Geeza /


I have given this talk around town for the last couple of years now and so pleased to finally add it to our coverage of the Hong Kong investment visa. This segment speaks to the proverbial issue of having started your Hong Kong business before you have received the permission of the Hong Kong Immigration Department to do so and in the process finding yourself in the Catch 22!

Watch this video on YouTube.

The talk was graciously hosted at WYND Co-working Space, ran by a group of great people for whom I have a great deal of time.
