    Hi All - kind of hijacking this thread so apologies...and also apologies if the answer is somewhere else in the forums...


    Basically if someone is:

    -born in HK. 3*** on HK ID, has China 'return home' card, has HK passport and also a UK passport. Can that person apply for the APEC card with UK passport and include China in the APEC application. Would it cause any issues with HK immigration etc?

    thanks

    Note 3 clearly states you cant get China in the Apec card because you have a HRP.

    The UK is not a member of APEC. It is impossible for anybody to apply for an APEC card in UK with a UK passport.

    Or do you mean applying in HK with a HKID and a UK passport and 'forgetting' that you also have a HK passport? But what are you trying to achieve here?

    if I was Shiojiri Hiro, I would apply the APEC card with his HKSAR passport and just leave out China, even if you went to China say with your UK passport and got caught, I bet you after they (China Govt or Police) checked that you have HKSAR passport and HRP, they would not allow the British consulate to help you as you are considered Chinese.

    get the APEC card for other countries so you can enjoy visa free / special lane access.

    Thanks - asking for a friend but useful to know. the main concern was for UK consular support in other locations but good to know you can omit certain countries from the application as agree with Chukster that that wouldn't be recognized anyways.

    and yes, original question related to applying in HK with UK passport.

    You won't get China on the card even if applying using your UK passport. It is clear from your ID card (which you have to submit to ImmD) that you are a Chinese citizen. ImmD regulations clearly state that Chinese citizens can't use their card for entering China and will have to use their HRP.
