The Immigration Department (ImmD) will resume from May 11 the operation of all nine Smart Identity Card Replacement Centres (SIDCCs) under the Territory-wide Identity Card Replacement Exercise (Replacement Exercise).

The SIDCCs had to be closed to avoid the risk of spread of Covid-19 due to crowding. With the suspension of operations, the schedule for people to replace their Hong Kong ID cards was also revised.

In case the replacement of HKICs may need to be suspended again in the near future if the epidemic situation worsens, the Amendment Order also provides that if all SIDCCs are not in service for 21 working days or more from May 11 to July 27, 2020, for public health reasons, the schedule will again be adjusted. The Amendment Order will be tabled at the Legislative Council on May 13, 2020, for negative vetting.

An ImmD spokesman said, "If the call-up program has to be further adjusted for public health reasons, the ImmD will make announcement in advance as far as possible through various channels to inform the public of the latest arrangement.
