Landing Slips Replace Stamps For Hong Kong Non-Permanent Residents

By ExpatBriefing.com Editorial

Non-permanent residents in Hong Kong will now be issued a landing slip during arrival clearance, rather than having their travel documents stamped.

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 clearance procedure."

Non-permanent residents who also require a travel record can apply to the Department for this, although there is a fee of HKD160 (USD20).
