For a Hong Kong Company willing to retain the services of foreign employees it’s currently difficult to evaluate what will be the immigration department rules POST COVID 19, till date a working visa could be obtained by:
- Demonstrating that no locals’ employees could bring the same level of competences.
- Offering a compensation in line with the business practices (salary + housing allowance).
- Favouring the employment of locals.
With rising unemployment and a tense economic environment, foreign employees will face difficulties in obtaining a working visa.
