I was searching for an application for HKSAR re-entry permit for my friend on HK government website when I saw that:
"People who do not need an HKSAR Re-entry Permit:
"Under the Easy Travel Scheme, holders of Hong Kong identity cards bearing "***", "*" or "R" symbol or locally issued Hong Kong permanent identity cards, who are aged 11 or above, can travel from Hong Kong to the Mainland and Macao SAR and vice versa without producing an HKSAR Re-entry Permit or other travel documents at any Hong Kong immigration control point. They are also not required to fill in any arrival card or departure card."" (GovHK: Eligibility for HKSAR Re-entry Permit)
This is also on the application.
My question is: What is the Easy Scheme Travel?
