ImmigrationEdit

Your immigration status affects whether you can live, work and study in Hong Kong. It depends on three main factors:

  • Whether you have Right of Abode (also called "permanent residency") or previously had it;
  • Whether you have Chinese Nationality (also called "Chinese citizenship");
  • What sort of visa, if any, you hold.

You may have a different immigration status from your parents, your spouse or your children.
