If anyone have time, please give me some advice on the following questions.
My Home Return Permit expired a year ago and I need to renew it in-order to go to China for a few days.
I have downloaded the form 1 on the CTS HK site for renewal, but on the section for home address for myself and my parents, I don't know what to fill in.
I do not have any friends or relatives in Hong Kong, but my company have an office in Hong Kong, do you think CTS will have a problem if I put my HK company's Chinese address? Will they validate the address? I am currently in Singapore at the moment.
Also, does anyone have recommendations for a pre-paid sim card for oversea call forwarding? I saw that China Mobile offer this Prepaid SIM Card, not sure about the call quality.
I have the following documents that I will bring for the CTS appointment:
- HK birth certificate
- ***AZ HKPID issued in 2007
- Expired BNO Passport
- Expired Home Return Permit issued in 2007
- US Passport with a changed name
For renewals, have anyone been asked to show all their passport? I read on other threads that for first time applicants, they were required to fill out a "sheng ming shu" form if the name on their HKPID is different than their passport. I am not sure for renewals will they ask me to show my US passport, which have a different name than my HKPID.
In-case I need it, I tried to find the "sheng ming shu" form, but was unsuccessful. Does anyone know what is the official name for it?
Below is the CTS links I found, but I don't think they are the "sheng ming shu" form.
http://ww1.ctshk.com/pdf/visa/chinaPermit01.pdf - this is the form I will use for renewal
http://ww1.ctshk.com/pdf/visa/chinaPermit02.pdf - this looks like it's a Letter of entrustment
http://ww1.ctshk.com/pdf/visa/chinaPermit03.pdf - this one, I don't know.
Lastly, I heard people just go to the photo-booths to get their picture taken instead of bringing their own, does all CTS branches have a photo-booth? I plan to go to the one in Central.
Thank you in-advance for taking the time to read and response, I appreciate it.
