香港永久居民7年的居住計算辦法

我想請問, 我因為家裡的關係所以有香港居民身份(非用久性的,僱用身份居留), 想要7年後可以申請永久身份。 因為之後還是會以台灣為主, 所以大部分的時間可能還是會居住在台灣。 想知道在申請永久居民時,移民處真的會要算滿7年嗎?還是在拿到身分證那天起算7年就可以, 如果是的話, 離開香港可以每次多久, 離開後多久內回香港“刷卡(即身分證入境)” 可以避免身分證被取消, 或著申請永久居民時有麻煩? *最好可以一併提供官方的資訊。 謝謝!

    Immigration Department uses the term "ordinary reside", not "physically reside".

    What it means that a person needs not to stay in Hong Kong physically for 7 years. However, he must prove that the time he leaves Hong Kong, he should be still considered as a Hong Kong resident (like the leave is business/leisure travel).

    In defining "ordinary reside", Immigration Department has its discretion on how a leave should be included or not (For example, there are cases that Immigration Department counts the time spent outside because of studying aboard).

    But I am certain what you have said will not constitute "ordinary reside".
