If you are granted a Hong Kong investment visa, does this allow you to (essentially) take up a dedicated employment on a consulting basis for a single client, effectively taking up a full time role to the exclusion of all other business opportunities for your self-owned company?
I’m currently in the process of applying for my Hong Kong investment visa.
In addition, I have an interview for a consulting position with another organization.
They will not support me with the 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 also need to 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.
Thank you very much in advance.
