danielmiller9229 posted Visa problem (about office space) on the Hong Kong forum:
Im dan and im from the states, recently thinking of coming to hong kong to start my own business (first place in asia). I have applied to the immigration department and they require me to have an address for my business in the future, and i think thats just stupid. How am I suppose to commit and sign a contract and pay for a year contract (the prices im looking at is in hong kong island and per month it is $13500. Even if I do rent this place, but it isnt a guarentee that I will get my visa for sure.. so is there any alternative I can choose from other than commit to a year contract. Thanks Dan

property in Hong-KongGF leaving, looking for expat male roommate . fully furnished, single bed and closet provided. easy going roommate, 27 male, works in consulting. 1 year + lease
I'm hoping someone can advise me on how i can marry a Filipino national living in Hong Kong who is married but separated from her abusive ex 4 yrs ago. She thought that she needs to pay a lawyer for an annulment but now she had a friend tell her that if we marry in Hong Kong then it doesn't matter. I want to get her in the UK with me so she can still work. Her HK work visa runs out in Aug15 so have some time but need to know where we stand. So my question is this, can i marry her legally in HK without the annulment and her still be able to apply for UK visa as my partner?

nksutsko posted Going to HK to House Hunt Help on the Hong Kong forum:
My husband and I will be going to HK in a few weeks to do our house hunt. Then our family will be moving from London to HK in August. We have 2 kids going to HKA, located in Sai Kung and my husband will be working in Mongkok. Does anyone have any recommendations on places, or areas to live?? Ideally we are looking to live near other expats, in a place that has amenities like a pool. Are there any specific developments, buildings, etc. that has all this that you could recommend? We are starting to get excited, but are anxious to pick the right location. Your help is much appreciated!
