Q: Is it still possible to convert F visas to Z visas in Hong Kong?

 I know it's not recommended, but is it still do-able?

nope, you can not. first you have to finish the employment permit, invitation letter to HK to apply for z visa. then you can convert whatever visa you had into  z visa. Then you come back to china for work permit and resident permit.

I was told you need to return to your country of origin.  Is this true or can a run to HK or anyplace out of China be acceptable?

 

mike695ca:

in almost all but the rarest cases you will need to go back to your home country to change your visa from L or F to a Z , if you currently have a Z visa and are renewing or changing employers you shouldnt need to go back.  Just to change the type of Visa to a Z
