This handbook makes available in a convenient form the full text of the Immigration Ordinance (Cap 115), together with section-by-section annotations, amendment notes, carefully researched case authorities, expert commentary, and other authoritative material presented in a concise and succinct style.

    The third edition of this handbook has been updated with the latest developments, including but not limited to: annotations to Part VIIC and Schedule 1A of the Ordinance, which concerns non-refoulement law; discussion on the relevance of family and socio-economic rights under the Basic Law and Hong Kong Bill of Rights; the proper approach to humanitarian considerations concerning dependant visas, deportation orders, and removal orders; definition and method of proof of "Chinese Nationality" in relation to permanent residents; a recent CFA decision exploring discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation in the dependent visa policy; various offences under the Ordinance.

    This series has been citied with authority in over one hundred court cases in the Hong Kong Court of First Instance, Court of Appeal and Court of Final Appeal. Practitioners, immigration law specialists, academics, students and all others engaged or interested in immigration law and practice in Hong Kong will find this handbook invaluable.

    Kevin Lau

    Kevin was called to the Bar in 2017. He is developing a broad civil practice, including one with public law elements (see e.g. his appearances for the returning officers in Chow Ting v Teng Yu-Yan Anne [2019] 4 HKLRD 459 and Lau Siu Lai v Kwok-Wai Fan Franco [2020] HKCFI 787). He has also received instructions in immigration-related matters, including in particular torture claim-related applications.
