Hi Mell nice to meet you,

im wondering if you know something regarding to work in HK??
Im planning traveling 2011 and my final stop w´d be HongKg, so if it´s posible, do you think it would b easier to be there and apply for a job having a tourist visa..? i mean apply for a foreigners job.
Thank you for your time and knowledge.
Hello Eloy 😊
I havent been to Hong Kong yet. I made a thread for your questions, so hopefully somebody else knows the answers.
Hopefully, replies will still come, but in the meantime it may be worth checking out some of the blogs about Hong Kong written by members of TravelBlog. I know for sure some of them worked in Hong Kong.
I've lived and worked in HK for almost 5 years as a teacher. Beyond education and banking, there are few - if any - other options for foreigners, unless you're a specialist in your field of sorts (immigration rules mean local companies must explain why/how a local cannot be recruited for the job, before the services of a visitor are approved) See http://www.globalcitizen.co.uk/wp/toms-tefl-teaching-abroad-tips/ for my tips on teaching here.
You need a job before you can get a visa. Tourist visas tend to be 3 months, depending on your nationality.
