http://www.hongkongvisahandbook.com - this is the factsheet on the Hong Kong Visitor Visa Extension 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.
So, once you have been admitted into Hong Kong as a visitor, first extensions to your stay as a visitor are readily grant by the Immigration Department. When you apply, you as a visitor visa holder must be able to satisfy the Immigration Department that you remain a bona fide visitor in Hong Kong. Particularly, the examining officer is looking to ensure that you will not be breaching your conditions of stay if they allow you to remain in Hong Kong as a visitor for a further period of time.
So, if you seek to extend your visitor visa, there are three things that we need to discuss. The first is the first extension. Well, when you approach the Immigration Department down in Wanchai, you are going to have to be able to satisfy them that you are still a bona fide visitor. This will effectively mean that they are going to do a little bit of analysis as to why you have been in Hong Kong for as long as you have, what have you been doing, and what are your intentions if they are able to grant you an extension? Whatever the reason is that you have in your request to remain for a longer period of time, you will need to submit that down in writing and as part of your justification they will expect that you will have a final date of when your visit will terminate and that you will provide an undertaking that you will in fact leave on or before that day; but the reality is the Immigration Department is very flexible, they are very receptive to these applications and indeed they are readily granted.
The problems then begin to pile up for you if you seek further extension subsequent to your first extension. The key question will be why and particularly because you have already given written justifications previously and you have given a written undertaking first time out. So, whilst this is not impossible, certainly the Immigration Department will be looking very carefully at your rationale for any further extension in those circumstances.
