Just how ‘flexible is the Hong Kong investment visa?
QUESTION OF THE WEEK
I’m Swedish and currently in the process of applying for a Hong Kong investment visa.
In addition, I have an interview for a consulting position with another organization. They will not support me with an employment visa and have asked me if I can also work with an investment visa.
The answer I got from immigration was that I cannot take up a full-time position when holding only an investment visa and that I should instead apply for a work visa. I was wondering if there is any possibility or workaround?
The consulting position is related to my start-up, so I thought about asking the organization to contract my company as a consultant.
I would appreciate your advice on my case.
