The Immigration Department has announced that Hong Kong residents born from 1992 to 1995 with the old form of smart Hong Kong ID card should apply for a new smart identity card at the city’s nine smart ID card replacement centres from July 25 to Oct. 6.
The HKID replacement exercise covers all permanent and non-permanent Hong Kong residents who are permitted to take up employment in the city, have made investments, or reside or study here.
The new Smart Identity Card was introduced in November 2018, with new security features, card durability, and chip technology to enhance personal data protection.
Bookings can be made online or on the department’s mobile app. Hong Kongers can also head to the nine smart identity card replacement centres, located in Wan Chai, Kwun Tong, Mong Kok, Tseun Wan, Sha Tin, Sheung Shui, Tuen Mun, Yuen Long, and Sai Kung.
