What is the deal if you help out a charity / NGO on a volunteer basis whilst holding a visitor visa in Hong Kong?
Hi Visa Geeza,
I am Canadian and I first came to Hong Kong on April under a 3 month training visa as part of a university program.
While doing my training (an internship) I met the director of an NGO that is both a registered charity in Hong Kong and a registered non-profit in Vancouver.
I ended up volunteering for the NGO after my internship for about 4.5 months while looking for a job in Hong Kong.
I volunteered for the Vancouver branch of the NGO doing remote work such as emails and social media, basically stuff that can be done anywhere.
I was a visitor in Hong Kong at the time and also traveling in Asia.
Is it considered legal for me to work for this Canadian NGO while I was in Hong Kong?
Basically I was doing remote work as a Canadian for a Canadian organization.
I just happened to be doing it on my laptop in coffee shops in Hong Kong.
Hoping you can help me!
