Visa Extension and Contract Renewal
The Government announced on 25 March that they will continue to implement the previous measure allowing employers to extend the existing contracts with their outgoing helpers. For all contracts that expire on or before June 30, 2022, the Commissioner for Labour has given in-principle consent for extending the employment period for a maximum period of six months, on the basis that such variation is agreed upon by both the employer and the employee.
If arrangements cannot be made for a newly hired domestic worker to come to Hong Kong within the six-month extension period and the employer needs to continue to employ their worker beyond the six-month extended period, the employer should consider applying for contract renewal with the existing worker.
