Hi Salai,

Have spoken to any hospitals so far?

I don't have any specific salary figure, but glassdoor.com might be a good resource for salary averages.

Before you figure out salary averages, you should take note of how expensive it can be to live in Hong Kong. Rent is ridiculously high there.

Read this Expat Arrivals page on the cost of living in Hong Kong, as well as this Expat Arrivals article on salaries for expats in Hong Kong

Hi Salai,

Will you work in private hospitals so far? My friend works in a public hospital as nurse and she earns 20K per month. I think you need to secure yourself by finding a job in HK before moving here, because living index is quite high in HK.

You may need to apply for a bank card as soon as you move to HK, but usually you can hardly open a bank account if you are a expat newly moving to HK. 

It requires less requirements and relatively east to apply.
