Smart ID card replacement is done in phases, according to years of birth

The Immigration Department has announced that Hong Kong residents born in 1970, 1971 or 1972 should apply for new smart identity cards between Nov. 2 this year to Apr 30, 2021.

Currently, those born in 1962 or 1963 should have their HKID cards replaced if they haven’t done so yet. The last day for their call-up period is Jan 30, 2021. Those who have not yet applied for a new smart identity card should do so as early as possible.

All applicants must go to a Smart Identity Card Replacement Centre during their call-up period after making an appointment via, or the 24-hour hotline, 2121 1234. The replacement centers are open Monday to Saturday, from 8am to 10pm (except public holidays). The complete list of the centers can be found here:

Applicants are requested to fill up the application form before going for their appointments to enjoy faster service. They should also bring their old HKID card.

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.  


The territory-wide ID card replacement exercise covers all Hong Kong residents, whether they are permanent residents or non-permanent residents taking up employment, investment, residence or study in Hong Kong.
A caring arrangement is being implemented under this scheme, in which each eligible applicant for identity card replacement may bring along up to two persons with disabilities, in addition to two family members or friends aged 65 or above, to replace their ID cards together.
