Hi there,

does anyone knows how much is the salary of a Sin-based Cathay cabin crew?

I mean since there are only turn-around flights, does it mean that we would only be getting the basic pay without any allowance?

Do you think there will be a chance for us to be converted to a Hong Kong-based crew after some time?

Does anyone know if Singaporeans are eligible to apply for the Cathay Hong Kong-based crew positions?

Hi Komi, thanks for your reply. Do you know how can we get a right of abode in Hong Kong then? I know we have to get a job in Hong Kong first; but the thing is, how do we go about it?

to be able to qualify for a working visa in hk, you'll need to hv a job in hk first, you're right on this. but frankly, it's very difficult to do that, because generally, for any company to employ you.. they are required to go through lotsa hassle like submitting and declaring their company information and etc (e.g. size of company, number of staff, nature of business, volume of business, salary for existing staff, profit and revenue information) and most importantly, they need to state valid reason why it's a necessity to employ a foreigner (special skills required etc.) instead of a local, salary and also information of the intent foreigner employee.

it's alot of work and documented proof required in the process, this is also the reason why.. usually only for high posts or special positions that required foreigner expertise then hk will wanna consider overseas applicants. if not, they'd rather employ a local. it's much easier on their part. this is also the main reason why most people find it difficult to get a job in hk (they wanna give priority to the locals).

nevetheless, there are still successful cases, and if you're interested to work in hk, u can try to get urself some interviews and request the company to help u apply a visa. however, don't pin hopes of CX doing that for crew, not at this moment.

to answer ur question, you'll also be able to get the right of abode in hk if you marry a local. the process is very fast. my friend got a PR less than 1 month of marriage registration

you'll also be required to stay in hong kong for more than 7 years (with proof of working within the period) then you'll also be able to get right of abode in hk without getting married to a local

if you hold a british passport and was born before a certain date (pls check website for info), you can also get the right of abode, will have to apply for the immigration office in hk - i don't know the exact details for this

hope this helps
