Prodded by Catholic Church, Hong Kong eases access to residency
Catholic World News - January 21, 2011
Hong Kong has eased its migration laws, allowing the adult children of parents living in Hong Kong to apply for residency, even if the children were born in mainland China. Proponents of the new policy credit the influence of the Catholic Church for its approval.
The new policy will open the doors to people who applied for residency in Hong Kong before they reached 14 years of age, and whose parents were residents of Hong Kong before November 1, 2001.
