Non-permanent residents in Hong Kong will now be issued a landing
slip during arrival clearance, rather than having their travel
The slips hold details of the holder's name in English, travel
document number, date of arrival and conditions and limit of stay.
Non-local students, foreign domestic helpers and imported workers
admitted under the Supplementary Labour Scheme will be issued with a
new slip on each arrival in Hong Kong, while in other cases, a slip
will be issued on first arrival only.
Those who lose their slips can apply for a replacement for free,
although the Immigration Department says that the loss of a slip will
not affect departure clearance formalities.
The Department said that the new system would provide "more efficient
services to non-permanent residents and simplify the immigration
Non-permanent residents who also require a travel record can apply to
the Department for this, although there is a fee of HKD160 (USD20).
