遺失了外國居留証,之後申請簽證,那算是在外國定居嗎?

本人香港出生,身份証有***.因方便在外國長期逗留工作,拿了當地"有限期"的居留証.

但最近遺失了那居留証,當地入境處要我首先申請普通簽證,好讓我可以繼續在當地逗留,之後如自己有需要的話再重新申請新的居留証.那我在當地身份是可以拿了居留証後,但因遺失了居留証或其他原因,所以可以申請普通簽證在當地逗留,那請問我算不算是在"外國定居"嗎?

    I assume you do not have Permanent Residence (PR) of that country, because you say "有限期"的居留証".

    I am not so sure about that country's Immigration's advice. Losing your Residence Permit should NOT equal to losing that STATUS.

    I'll give you an example: losing your HK ID does not imply that you are an illegal resident in HK, right? It just means it is a little difficult to prove your HK PR status.

    Applying a NORMAL VISA imply that you are in that country for a different purpose (change from Working to say, Studying). The rights under different immigration status is of course different. So you might become an illegal worker.

    My advice is to call the Immigration again, see whether you can just get a replacement of that Residence Permit without going thru this troublesome procedures.

    By holding the Residence Permit, I think you are considered as Foreign Resident, but it should not affect your HK PR status, because your HK ID already has ***. But this foreign residence would affect your tax issues, which you might need to seek further help.
