Posted in Employment Visas, Investment Visas, Special Programmes, The Hong Kong Visa Geeza, Your Question Answered /


Simple enough of a question – will your Hong Kong work visa be compromised if you are forced into bankruptcy while temporarily resident in the HKSAR?



If I am currently a working visa holder in Hong Kong, how will my visa be affected if I go bankrupt?

Will the Immigration Department tell me to leave Hong Kong immediately or will I be allowed to stay until the expiration of my limit of stay?

Also, I assume this will definitely be a huge detriment if I want to apply for an extension of stay right?
