A Dependent Visa is needed when a dependent spouse and unmarried dependent children under the age of 18, may accompany a sponsor who holds either a valid visa, e.g., employment, investment, student (depends on the nature), or who has already attained permanent HK residency to apply for dependent visas.
Under the current immigration policy, dependent visa holders are free to work, study or set up their own business.
The age limit for unmarried dependent children should be under 18, and the age limit for dependent parents should be 60 or above. Only permanent residents are allowed to sponsor dependent parents.
If a mainland Chinese marries with a person who has permanent residence in Hong Kong, he/she cannot apply a dependent visa. He/she has to apply single entry from Mainland China to be able to stay in Hong Kong.
