What's the latest on getting a Visa from the goons at the China Resources Building? http://www.fmcoprc.gov.hk/eng/zgqz/
The last time I applied (2009) they wanted a record of all previous visits. Just wondering if it's a bit simpler these days.
I have a permanent ID card
They are still BarStewards !!!
Earlier this year: They forced me to cough up for brand-new - up to the minute - passport pix, and another copy of my HKID done in their Nest of Vipers, and then forced a payment of HK$1,200 for a three year visa - and this after having lived in HK for 40 years *&* having a HK Chinese spouse, & daughter fluent in Cantonese & Mandarin.
In previous times I was forced to fill in a new form solely 'cos the form I'd had squirreled away the previous time was now "obsolete".
Just download and print out the form and just overload them with the documentations that they demand.
I'd have loved to have told the Commie girl to stick the papers up where the sun don't shine, but I desisted - solely 'cos I knew that I'd soon HAVE to go the village burial ceremonies of my Father-in-Law along with my spouse & relatives - who all traveled on "Home Return" permits.
Thanks, Jenny. One of the best replies I've read in a while!
If it helps I got my 3 yr Visa through the service in Mong Kok, very efficient and no hassle
Despite being a Brit (and we have to pay HK$3500 for a 3yr Visa!!) it was all ok
