    "While it is not necessary, for expedience the lawyer advised to have separate wills set up in countries where assets are held so that it won't take a lengthy period for probate and grant to be given." -- Obiwan

    That is what all the lawyers keep telling me too but from my discussions with the probate office (and grilling of Will writing company) it is simply not always true. Wills from the following are accepted here.

    Here is exactly what the probate office told me: "A general Grant issued by any of the following designated countries (places) may be resealed in Hong Kong (without leave of the Registrar):
    United Kingdom
    Singapore
    Sri Lanka
    Victoria and South Australia and the Northern Territory of Australia
    The Australian States of Tasmania
    New Zealand"

    I still don't have all the answers but am getting closer!
