    Home Return Permit - Do I need a Chinese name?

    I have an HKSAR passport but have been told I need to add a Chinese name in order to get a HRP. Is that correct?

    If I don’t want to add a Chinese name can I get a Chinese visa on my foreign passport?

    Thanks!

    But when the China Travel Service see my HKID with the three *** won’t they ask me to apply for a HRP?

    You need a Chinese name on your HKPiD card, the passport can stay the same as is.
    Your hrtp will have both names on it, e.g,
    王八蛋
    Johnson, Michael

    You can come up with a Chinese name

    If they do it property, you would not be able to apply for a Chinese visa, as Chinese nationals are supposed to enter China with Chinese travel documents.

    You don't have to come up with a "Chinese" name. You can do a transliteration of your foreign name, though it's not common.

    Are you a naturalised Chinese or born Chinese national?

    No, they will not ask you to apply for an HRP on a three start HKID.

    Then you better not let them know you still have a foreign passport as you were supposed to have renounced your other nationalities when taking up Chinese nationality. I am surprised that you were not required to register a Chinese name then. I would assume if I take up say Russian citizenship I would be required to translate my name into Russian.

    What's the issue with getting a Chinese name on your passport and ID anyway? It's a whole lot cheaper than having to keep applying for Chinese visas.

    I had to add a Chinese name on my ID card only however to get my home permit. Was not required for my SAR Passport. This was many years ago, so things may have changed. Then when I renewed my passport upon expiry the Chinese name was added on.

    So you have both names in your passport now? Just like on the ID card ?
