The Hong Kong Nepalese Federation has urged Consul General Udaya Bahadur Rana and Consul Kiran Kumar Gurung of Nepal at Hong Kong Consulate General to help include Nepali domestic help in Hong Kong.

 According to Tanka Rana, the president of the Hong Kong Nepalese Federation, a delegation of the organization called on Rana and Gurung at their office to make the request.

Rana said the federation, an umbrella organization of Nepalese expats in Hong Kong, had got positive feedback from Consul General Rana. ''Nepalese in Hong Kong has won hearts and minds of Hong Kong people and the government, therefore I am hopeful that this will materialize in the days ahead'', Rana quoted Consul General as saying.'

According to statistics maintained by Hong Kong Nepalese Federation, around 40,000 Nepalese have been residing in Hong Kong with official IDs since 1997. Nepalese offspring born in Hong Kong without ID has been bereft of domestic help visa, said Rana. He added, ''We request Nepal government also for diplomatic dialogue to arrange such visa in talks between two governments.''

Pradeep Thapa, former president of the Federation, said providing opportunities for Nepali domestic help would generate a significant amount of remittance for the country.
