QT v Director of Immigration
HK Court of Final Appeal, 4-Jul-2018
The CFA upholds the CA ruling that QT was subject to unreasonable discrimination in her application for a dependent visa on grounds of her homosexuality, as there was no rational connection between the stated objective of attracting talent to HK and the policy restricting this benefit to heterosexual married persons. The CFA, disagreeing with the CA, also rules that there are no "core rights and obligations" of marriage such as adoption or inheritance that are immune from justification when discrimination is alleged.
