Let’s face it, the regular traipse down to Immigration Tower to get your visa extended is a right royal pain in the @ss.

The process is uncertain, you’re not sure what exactly you need to prepare and there’s always that nagging doubt that they might even say NO to your application!

Moreover, you’re never really sure how long they’ll extend your visa for, the number of trips to Wanchai you’ll need to make, nor how much sitting around you’re going to have to do in a soulless government office while the Hong Kong Immigration Department do ‘their thing’, seemingly, year after year…

Wouldn’t it be great if there was a professionally prepared resource you could rely on to take away the hassle of the Hong Kong visa extension process? A resource that contained all the things needed to help you get the visa renewal monkey off your back, and even though it was prepared by a Hong Kong visa and immigration specialist consultancy, was completely free of charge?

Well there is.

Read on to learn more…

The problem ultimately lies in the fact that the HKID website simply doesn’t provide all the answers to the questions which flow naturally from the process of a Hong Kong visa renewal.

Essentially, all the instructions and details of the information required to extend your visa are contained within a ‘one-size-fits-all’ visa extension application form. This makes it very difficult to suss out what the actual process is really all about. For example:

  • The form speaks of a ‘current employment letter’ – but doesn’t indicate what that letter should contain.
  • In some cases they want a copy of your HKID card – and often times, they do not.
  • The process calls for an employment contract for some lines of work – and for others, it’s simply not needed.

While the form clearly indicates that it should take about 2 weeks to finalise your case, it doesn’t say anything about applications made late in the day, just before your visa expires; it states nothing about what to do if you’re no longer working for your original employer; it makes no mention of how to manage the situation if you’ll be away on a long-planned holiday on the date that your current visa comes to an end.

This is because the role of the Hong Kong Immigration Department is to inform and decide, not to offer advice.  Figuring out what to do in a round-peg- square-hole situation is your problem, not theirs.

But there is a solution.

It’s called the Hong Kong Visa Extension Kit.
