http://www.hongkongvisahandbook.com - this is the Factsheet on the Hong Kong Fiance visa as found in the Hong Kong Visa Handbook. On the Hong Kong Visa Handbook website you will discover every possible resource required to effectively finish a Hong Kong visa application at the Hong Kong Immigration Department.
A visitor to Hong Kong who is formally engaged to a Hong Kong resident and who requires an extended period of stay to remain in the HKSAR prior to the nuptials and the legal ceremony, are able to apply to extend their visitor visa to cover the period before the ceremony takes place. This is known as a prolonged visitor visa application. After the ceremony is complete, an application can then be made for a dependent visa but not before.
For fiancés wishing to remain in Hong Kong until the completion of the nuptials, the exercise in getting the Immigration Department’s consent to remain is very much an administrative one. There is very little need to argue anything per se. When you make the application, you need to be formally engaged to be married to a Hong Kong resident; and on the basis that you are, you can make an application for a prolonged visitor visa and the Immigration Department will allow you to remain with prolonged visitor visa status until probably three or four weeks after the date of the nuptials have been completed. When you are making the application, you need to be able to prove to the Immigration Department the date of the legal ceremony and you do this by submitting the requisite official paper work showing the ceremony has been booked. Another thing that works towards proving that this is not just something that you have cobbled together at the last minute for visa purposes and it is actually a loving committed relationship and going down to the department when making the application with your partner is a very good idea. Normally, the visa extension is granted on spot and after the wedding you can apply for legal dependent visa.
