Hong Kong Passport
How to get HKSAR Passport?
A person is eligible to apply for a Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Passport if he/she is:
a Chinese National;
a permanent resident of the HKSAR; and

If the person concerned has declared a change of nationality and is no longer a Chinese national, he/she is not eligible for a HKSAR Passport.
