If your application for a Hong Kong training visa is successfully granted, it will enable you to pursue training in Hong Kong for up to one year. However, a Hong Kong training visa does not grant or aid any long-term employment visa for work in Hong Kong for foreigners.
Once the prescribed time period of training has been completed, the Hong Kong Immigration Department will normally not issue or accept any long-term Hong Kong employment visas or work permits to employees. It is rare for Hong Kong training visas to be renewed.
