The new Hong Kong ID.

The Immigration Department announced today, Jul 12 that all Hong Kong residents born in 1962 or 1963 should apply for a new smart identity card in person at a Smart Identity Card Replacement Centre (SIDCC) from July 28 (Tuesday) to September 22 (Tuesday).

The SIDCCs are open from Monday to Saturday, from 8am to 10pm (except public holidays).

The territory-wide ID card replacement covers all Hong Kong residents, who should apply in person at SIDCCs during their specified periods, whether they are permanent residents or non-permanent residents on employment, investment, dependant or study visas.

Eligible applicants may make appointment bookings via the Internet (, Immigration’s mobile application or the 24-hour telephone booking hotline 2121 1234. 
To make an appointment via the Internet or to download the mobile application, please scan the QR codes (see Annex II). The ImmD appeals to applicants to pre-fill the application form when making appointment bookings through the Internet or mobile application in order to enjoy faster service. Applicants need to bring along their old ID cards on their appointment dates.

A caring arrangement is in place, under which each eligible applicant for identity card replacement may bring along up to two persons with disabilities, or aged 65 or above, so they can have their ID cards replaced at the same time.

For Hong Kong residents born in 1957 to 1961, their specified period for identity card replacement will end on Jul 27 (Monday). Those who have not applied for a new identity card should do so as early as possible in order 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.


For details of the HKID card replacement exercise, please visit the website or call the enquiry hotline 2824 6111.
