the permission granted to him is for a period of more than 13 months. The
length of the employment contract for the person to work in Hong Kong or the
actual number of days the person has worked in Hong Kong is irrelevant.

to work in Hong Kong is not more than 13 months, but the visa is renewed and
brings the person’s total continuous period of permission for employment in
Hong Kong to over 13 months, that person would cease to be exempt from the
provisions of the Ordinance from the first day after the 13-month period.

employment or relates to the extension of the first employment is also
