1962-63 smart ID replacement set

July 15, 2020

Hong Kong residents born in 1962 or 1963 should apply for a new smart identity card at a Smart Identity Card Replacement Centre from July 28 to September 22, the Immigration Department announced today.


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


The card replacement centres are open Monday to Saturday, 8am to 10pm, except public holidays.


Applicants need to bring their existing smart identity cards when they go to the centres. They may take up to two disabled people and two family members or friends aged 65 or above to replace their identity cards together.


For citizens born in 1957 to 1961, their identity card replacement period will end on July 27.


The department said those who have not applied should do so as early as possible to avoid a last-minute rush.


Residents who are absent from Hong Kong during their call-up period can apply within 30 days of their return to the city.
