You must collect your new passport in person by producing your Hong Kong permanent identity card and the original copies of supporting documents (if any) submitted in the application for verification, your existing HKSAR Passport or Document of Identity for Visa Purposes (if any) for cancellation and appending your signature on the application form. For children aged below 16 and unmarried persons aged 16 or 17, the consenting parent or legal guardian must accompany the child/applicant for collection of passport in person, for appending his/her signature on the application form. If you apply in Hong Kong, you should collect the passport at the selected Immigration Office.

Upon collection, you are required to make a declaration to confirm the correctness of information furnished through online application.
