This question already has an answer here:
My wife is a Chinese national residing in Belgium. We would like to do the following itinerary:
Belgium --> Hong Kong (<7 days) --> Mainland China (e.g. Chengdu) --> Belgium
I assume my wife does not need a permit to go to Hong Kong. I assume she can return to Belgium from mainland China (no need to go back from Hong Kong)?
Can anyone confirm my assumptions ?
