Applying for Hong Kong Dependent Visa from Outside of Hong Kong

Hi There,

I'm a British national and my wife is currently working in Hong Kong. Am I allowed to apply to be her dependent in Hong Kong even though I'm currently not in HK?

Many thanks,

S

Re: Bringing Chinese wife to UK

Thanks for your help.

Would not having paid off my student loan cause any complications for applying for my wife's spouse visa?

Cheers,

Re: Bringing Chinese wife to UK

Hi,

My wife's current teaching contract in HK is until August 2021. Will she still be eligible to apply for a 2 year visa to the UK?

Thanks

Re: Bringing Chinese wife to UK

Hi There If I have £62,500 savings in my account starting from March until September 2020, will my wife then be able to apply for a spouse visa from Hong Kong (is it recommended to have more money than this)? Also, do they usually take the full 12 weeks to process, or can they sometimes be quicker? ...

Re: Bringing Chinese wife to UK

In order to apply for spouse visa, must my wife have proof of employment and residency from the country she's coming from? If so, what evidence would suffice?

Cheers!

Re: Bringing Chinese wife to UK

Thanks for all your advice so far. I am now considering getting a multiple entry visa so that we can take a trip to EU after arriving in UK. Now, if my wife applies for 2-year multiple entry visa in April, will she still be allowed to apply for the spouse visa in January (while the 2-year visa is st...

Re: Extending UK visitor visa

Sorry! That thread may have been getting into too much detail and hence perhaps off topic so I decided to start a new one.

Extending UK visitor visa

Hi There, My wife is a Mainland China citizen currently working in Hong Kong and I am a British man studying in UK. My wife currently has a UK visitor visa. She came to the UK for two weeks over between Dec 2019 and Jan 2020 and the visa expires in April 2020. I want to bring my wife to the UK as so...

Re: Bringing Chinese wife to UK

This would not be made from within the UK, but from Hong Kong. My wife is currently in Hong Kong (and she is a Mainland China citizen) while I am in the UK. I want to bring her here as soon as possible for 6 months without her having to go back to Hong Kong in April, when her current visa is due to ...

Re: Bringing Chinese wife to UK

My wife currently holds a visitor visa that lasts until April this year. Could this be extended immediately so that she could come to the UK very soon without having to return to HK in April?

Re: Bringing Chinese wife to UK

Thanks.

Furthermore, since my wife is currently working in Hong Kong, would her current salary count towards the application? Or must it be a UK job?

Re: Bringing Chinese wife to UK

If we are to use savings in support of a visa application, does it have to be in my (the husband's) account, or can they also be in my wife's account?

Re: Bringing Chinese wife to UK

Thanks for reply. Furthermore, my current plan is as follows: My wife will first apply for a standard visitor visa in April 2020. My wife's current contract ends in 2021, so we have proof that she can return to Hong Kong, although we intend for her to break that contract when she moves to the UK. I ...
