The Immigration Department announced today, Sept 10, that it has revised the schedule for applying for new Smart identity cards for residents born in 1957 to 1963, and 1970 to 1976, after the latest suspensions due to the resurgence of Covid-19 infections.

Those born in 1957, 1958 and 1959 will be able to apply for their new Smart ID cards until Sept. 26 this year. The same deadline has been set for those born in 1960 and 1961, and members of the sixth term of District Councils.

An Immigration spokesman said in a statement: "Having considered that the replacement of HKICs may be affected again if there is any sudden turn in the epidemic situation, the Amendment Order repeals the previous call-up program for holders of HK Identity Cards born between 1973 and 1976 in order to avoid public confusion caused by multiple adjustments. When the epidemic stabilises, the Secretary for Security will designate the call-up program for the relevant years of birth. The ImmD will then make announcements through different channels as soon as possible so that the public will be informed of the latest arrangements."
