Hi all! Wonderful site you have here. I have some questions regarding the process of applying for a HK ID card. I had sent an email to [email protected] last week but have not received any response yet. Below is the contents of my email to them. If anyone here can shed some light, I would very much appreciate it.
I was born in HK, and my family had immigrated to the US when I was 2 years old. I am currently 27 years old and will be going to HK for vacation in a few weeks using my US passport. I would like to be able to apply for a HK ID card during my 2 and a half week stay in HK. I can provide copies of my birth certificate and copies of my parent's HK ID cards. I would like to know if I need to provide any other documents. Since the process will take at least 6 weeks, will I need to stay in HK to receive the ID card or could it be mailed to me in the US? Do I need to make a reservation with the immigration office beforehand or can I just show up at the immigration office with my documents?
Thank you for your time and patience!
