Special Arrangement for Applying Travel Documents for Newborn Babies

With immediate effect, if an eligible newborn child in Hong Kong is required to apply for travel documents (including HK Re-entry Permit and/or HKSAR Passport) after the birth registration, the parent or legal guardian of the child can make such an application with the Hong Kong birth certificate issued on that day. The parent or legal guardian may approach the reception counter of any of the Immigration branch offices on the same day [Note: Before 3:30 pm for Mondays to Fridays and before 11 am for Saturdays, except Sundays and General Holidays]. In applying for travel documents for the child, the parent or legal guardian should bring the child to the office in person and bring along the following documents to support the application:

  1. the child's Hong Kong birth certificate [Note: Item (11) of the certificate should read "2(a), Schedule 1 to the Immigration Ordinance (Cap. 115) established"];
  2. recent photos of the child [Note: two photos for Re-entry Permit or/and three photos for HKSAR Passport (colour photo with plain white background)];
  3. consenting parent or legal guardian's Hong Kong identity card or valid travel document;
  4. completed application form(s) [ID73A(Re-entry Permit) or/and ID842 and ROP3 (HKSAR Passport)]; and
  5. a completed Form for Countersignature [ID641] with a copy of identity document of the person countersigning the form.
