hi all i am new here, i read alot and its a very nice forums.
I am a HK hk permanent resident, having Right of abode in HK, study and work in US for 7 years. My finance (malaysia chinese) has been working in US for 4 years aslo. We plan to marry and move to HK within short time (< 3 months).
Here is my problem, in order for my bf to obtain his HKID (for working purpose), I need to be his sponsor for the dependent visa application. But since I plan to be a housewife after marry, how can I provide
"(ii) evidence of the sponsor's financial standing;
(iii) evidence of the applicant's financial standing;" ??
I am SW developer and he is a sourcing manager at this time. We're in the 20's and doesn't have lots of saving (but reasonable), but I am sure we can get a job offers shortly.
1) Can I skip the dependent visa prcoess, instead, go stright to the HKID application after our marriage took place?
2) If I must apply for the dependent visa first, what's the defination for "evidence of the sponsor's/applicant's financial standing;", would there be a certain standard for salary/saving? Will past (US) pay stub, tax return, saving account be enough?
3) Is it possible/necessary for him to enter HK in visitor visa, then change status to dependent visa in order to start the HKID application process?
4) Do I HAVE TO be employed to be a sponsor? Because I hear case would be different for the wife as sponsor than the husband.
P.S. I already email to the email@example.com, but the reply is not helpful.
