Immigration Department relocation of Yuen Long Office and expansion of Fo Tan Office

22 February 2018

The Immigration Department today (February 22) announced that the Yuen Long Office (YLO) will be relocated to 1/F, Yuen Long Government Offices, 2 Kiu Lok Square, Yuen Long from next Monday (February 26). The existing office at Manhattan Plaza, Yuen Long will close the same day. In addition, after its expansion, the address of the Fo Tan Office (FTO) has been amended as Shops 405-407, 4/F, Jubilee Square, 2-18 Lok King Street, Fo Tan.

The YLO and the FTO mainly provide services to members of the public relating to the application and issue of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) travel documents, extension of stay in Hong Kong and registration and replacement of identity cards. The new YLO is conveniently located, and with a substantial increase in floor area compared to the original office, members of the public will be able to process their applications in a more user-friendly and spacious environment. Following its expansion the FTO now has more service counters and its handling capacity has been strengthened to further improve the quality of services provided to members of the public.

Eligible applicants aged 18 or over and those born in Hong Kong and aged 11 to 17 may submit HKSAR passport applications at self-service kiosks. To meet the ever-increasing demand for HKSAR passports, the Immigration Department has set up more self-service kiosks at Immigration Headquarters and Immigration branch offices, increasing the total number from 19 to 28. Applications for a replacement passport due to loss, damage or change of personal data should be made in person.

HKSAR travel document application forms and information leaflets on application procedures and the requisite documents are available at Immigration Headquarters and Immigration branch offices. For details and application forms, please visit the website www.gov.hk/passport . Further application details for HKSAR travel documents are also available at the Easy Access of the Immigration Department YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/immdgovhkchannel). Enquiries can also be made by telephone (2824 6111), fax (2877 7711) or email (enquiry@immd.gov.hk).
