I need to change my name on the permanent HKID to my married name. I applied via the Register of Persons website and got an appointment date where i will come and present the evidence and pay the new card fee.
I live abroad and I cannot stay 7 working days to wait for my new HKID card, so I would like to understand the process in this case. Do I need to render my existing HKID card at the interview? Do I get anything back from the officer which I can use to exit HK Immigration at the airport?
I understand that I can appoint another person to collect the new card on my behalf (this was stated on the email from the ROP) but I would like to make the whole thing clear - based on what document I Ieave Hong Kong and through which channel.
I plan to have the HKID card sent to me from Hong Kong upon collection.
