Next ID card replacement set

July 12, 2019

Hong Kong residents born in 1964 or 1965 should apply for a new smart identity card at a Smart Identity Card Replacement Centre from July 27 to September 23, the Immigration Department announced today.


Bookings can be made online, on the department’s mobile application or by calling the 24-hour hotline 2121 1234.


Applicants can pre-fill the application form when booking an appointment online or through the mobile application to enjoy a faster service.


Under a new caring arrangement, eligible applicants may bring up to two family members or friends aged 65 or above to replace their smart identity cards together.


The department reminded citizens born in 1966 or 1967 that their specified period for identity card replacement will end on July 26.


Those who have not applied for the new identity card should do so as early as possible to avoid a last-minute rush.


If eligible Hong Kong residents are absent from Hong Kong during their call-up period, they can apply within 30 days of their return to Hong Kong.
