A Filipino man was refused bail by Hong Kong’s High Court on December 6 after overstaying his visa for 19 years.
Manuel C. Sy Jr. was discovered to have overstayed his visa after being arrested some weeks ago for stealing HK$54 (US$7) worth of items from a supermarket on Hong Kong Island, sunwebhk.com reports.
Sy arrived in Hong Kong in 1998. His mother, who is a permanent resident in the city, applied to keep him in Hong Kong as a dependant but her application was rejected by the Immigration Department. The reason is unknown.
The judge at Sy’s High Court hearing refused to post bail. Sy faces trial in Sha Tin Court on December 21 for breaching condition of stay.
If his mother is a hong kong resident,the son should have been too right ?
yes, but he must be under 18 while applying application as dependent
Over staying k n nga nagnakaw ka pa dapat lng sa iyo n makulong
Depends on the situation, the backgrounds, the supporting documents, and now HK immigration is very strict when it comes to that matter, me too my daughter was rejected as well as the officers depend on the background of the person who support the application.But its fine being a law abiding person we should accept HK Immigrations decission and have to follow their laws.
Kabayan… Bakit naman sa 54hkd lang ninakaw mo pa:(
Nakakalungkot naman isipin na sa maliit na halaga ninakaw mo pa 🙁
Ng dahil lng sa 54hkd…natiklo na papeles mo..syang nmn..
Gie Anne, Hi Gie you can re apply until your child will get..
19 long years …is not a joke ….then 54dollar items its,a joke.
But face the conciquenses. SY JR. im sure his father’s family is rich. HENRY SY is the owner of SM MEGAMALL and big business in phil. Sad christmas .
I like HK for thier law is law rules…
If you support your son and daughter to become a hongkong resident as far as i know should be under 18years of age if over already it will not be granted
Asif Ansari bhai saheeh bolay aap

Shaikh Daniyal Sohail you simply dont understand what i mean
And if he had not been a thief, he may have been able to steal for another ten, twenty years. Foolish man in more ways than one. Now, surely his mother knew tjat her son had overstayed illegally, so isn’t she also guilty of a crime?
Ng NAKAW k ng ganyan halaga pnhamak m tuloy sarili mo sana humingi k n lng mga kapwa mong pilipino
Lushme Ghale they will check your financial status before you will approve

She must have strong supporting documents such as Address proove , bank statements, job letter , HK ld etc etc and reasonable answers of Questions they ask.
Lushme Ghale no madam, once you get rejected its on their record and they will keep refusing you for the next application. Waste of time so i give up but its ok, if its for us well thanks God, but if not so be if.

Veronica Terry Huerta Faith sis …cute is true but your so funny…Hahaha I’m laughing…I think he did not understand what do you mean
Their Hongkong Resident mother should apply for their children’s residency while they are still in their teens because their application will be denied or rejected by the immigration if the child is already 18 years old.
Lushme Ghale It is not easy as there are requirements by the Immigration especially if their children were not born in Hongkong. The immigration requires the children to come to Hongkong every year while their application is being processed and.. The government also require the children to study in Hongkong for at least 1 year. There is also an age limig fir children applying for permanent residency. 18 years old and above are not qualified.
Lee Edmond you
malaki problema nya kya nlkagawa ng ganon.una illigal cya paano mkahanap ng trabaho.
Nope depends SA immigration yan ang dalawa Kong anak dito mkuha khit below 18 years pa sila
If this were the US there’d be a riot and people demanding he be called an "undocumented Hong Konger" or something.
