Got my visa today (Applied in HK)

Hey all,

I have been a lurker on this thread for a while now and wanted to let everyone know my situation.

You can still get a multiple entry visa. I picked up my 6 month multiple entry visa (L) this morning, but it was not easy to get! I really had to argue with them.

I am a HK resident (not permanent yet) and have a wife who lives in GZ (Chinese citizen). We work for the same company, but are working in separate cities as per job requirements. At first, when i went to apply they flat out said "NO". Then I started to argue with them and she caved in a little bit. She offered to "help" me apply for a multiple entry visa, but couldn't make any promises. She required a lot of documents (originals and copies), such as: Marriage license, proof of where my wife lives (i.e. deed to the house), past multiple entry visas, proof of our employment etc... etc...

I had a few things going for me I think:

1. A past history of multiple visas
2. A proven relationship (i.e. marriage and not just a girlfriend)
3. All the required documents
4. I was able to argue in Mandarin (her English wasn't very good)

Also, as a tip: go early, go prepared! I was there at 7am (for a 9am opening) and there was already a lineup and MAKE SURE you have all your documents! People were being turned away left and right for not having their papers in order. Even if you don't think they will need it, bring it! It appears to me there is not set rules. Things appear to be very objective still. If you can prove your case, you will get it.

Good luck!

Perhaps I can persuade Mrs FD to adopt you as family?

Uncle Kiwi? :)
