Provision of further facilitation for enrolment for automated clearance service by Hong Kong and Singapore on a mutual basis

  • December 24,2018
  • The Immigration Department (ImmD) today (December 12) announced provision of further facilitation for enrolment for automated clearance service by Hong Kong and Singapore on a mutual basis so that eligible holders of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) passports and those of Singapore passports will enjoy greater convenience when they travel between the two places.

    Under the existing arrangement, Singapore passport holders aged 11 or above who have visited Hong Kong for no fewer than three times within 12 months prior to enrolment and have no adverse records in Hong Kong can take their Singapore passports with a validity period of at least six months to the e-Channel enrolment offices at the Immigration Headquarters, the Hong Kong International Airport or the Macau Ferry Terminal to enrol for the e-Channel service in Hong Kong. With effect from December 13 this year, eligible Singapore passport holders who have visited Hong Kong for no fewer than two times within 24 months prior to enrolment can enrol for the e-Channel service in Hong Kong. Other enrolment criteria under the new arrangement will remain unchanged.

    Reciprocally, HKSAR passport holders aged 11 or above who have visited Singapore for no fewer than two times within 24 months prior to enrolment and have no adverse records in Singapore can take their HKSAR passports with a validity period of at least six months to the enrolment centres located at Changi Airport, Woodlands Checkpoint, Tuas Checkpoint or the ICA Building in Singapore for automated clearance service enrolment.

    Enrolment is on a voluntary basis and free of charge. For details, please visit the website of the ImmD at www.immd.gov.hk and that of the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority of Singapore at www.ica.gov.sg.
