    I think you still have to pay for the rest days, even in the first three months.....

    Yes, you'd have to pay for the weekly off (sunday or whichever day it is that you give). Only statutary holidays may not be paid. But honestly, we paid.

    Sorry for hijacking this thread OP, but I would like some advice as well. My new DH finally arrived home on the 19th. Now with the CNY holidays etc, do I have to give her the 3 statutory days off? Also, she waited for her visa in Macau, so do I calculate her travel allowance from Macau to HK (i.e., 1 day)?

    you are required to give her the time off, but she is not entitled to pay, though most employers do pay.

    Travel allowance is from her home not where she waited for her visa.
