Hi guys,

I moved back to Australia in March for a role which was then revoked a week before I was suppose to start because of the Covid 19 situation. Prior to Australia, I lived in Hong Kong for around 10 years where I have credit cards and debt outstanding of around 100k AUD. Because I am now out of work I am unable to make payments on my cards and loans in Hong Kong.

Can debt collectors take me to court for overseas debt? Also what is the chance they will take this to court in Hong Kong, get a default judgement against me and use the Foreign Judgements Act 1991 to make the judgement in HK enforecable in Australia?

Appreciate any advice.
