Ok, since you mentioned that HKSAR is a pre-req for applying for the HRP sometime around 2005, I just recall then my brother would have to apply for this b/c we have an appt next week w/ immigration. So is this HKSAR application available online in English version w/ notes? Could he apply for both simultaneously? Would it be done at the same office? So it's ok for him to have a HKSAR and a US passport? We dont' want to lie about our US citizenship. The whole point i asked him to get the HKID was so he coudl get a HRP. Now that you clarified that since 2005 a HKSAR is a prereq...I wonder if he's going to have any hassles in the processes.
