Hello friends,

I got an offer from HK company... But the thing they say is the position being offered is LOCAL and NOT as an expat.... How does that make diff? Do we see any big differences in regards to benefits as an expat and local? and what are pros and cons of joining as a local person... They say they cannot even provide accomodation...
And one more, I need dependent visa for my mom for which they are not ready to sponsor... If I wish to, how long would that take and is there anyway I can contact immigration depart directly? Please help...

Thanks...

I don't think it makes a difference and it's normal they can't provide accommodation regardless of whether you're local or expat (unless you're really high up in a company).

Maybe you can tell us more about the industry and the nature of this job?

i think a local contract will really affect your annual leave allowance, how many days per week and hours per day you work and other benefits like medical, housing etc

you will hate working 6 days a week and everyone else off on weekend. be careful and ask for all the details
