About:China Consulate in Sydney

Hi

I have a HK birth cert, but immigrated to New Zealand when I was 5 and have only ever been back for holidays on my NZ passport so I do not have a HK ID. I should have the right to a HK PR/citizen/ID since I was born there, how do I get one of these as I am looking to work and live in HK? What information will i need to apply for? Can I do this in the Sydney HK embassy?

Thanks.
May

Ms.May, you can apply for HK Identity Card, which is issued to people who doesn't have the right of residence in HK and will stay in HK for more than 180 days. You have to register and get the HK ID within 30 days after entry.

HK PR is issued to people who have permanent residence in Hk by the immigration department. HK PR holders can enter HK without visa. You have the HK birth certificate, however, one of your parents are not Hk PR holders, so you can't apply for HK PR.
