We have been contacted a lot recently by applicants who’s cases have been refused - so this question is both timely and, for all those affected, of great significance.
“I would like to know if, once I have received the first rejection letter from an Officer of the HKID for my employment visa application, I can either:
i) file Reconsideration and if still rejected,
ii) then file S53 Review, or
iii) make direct application to the Chief Executive after second rejection?”
