Reply Renew Hong Kong SAR passport in Chinese Embassy New York

1) I need to renew my HK SAR passport in New York. Which Form ID should I use?
2) I work in US under L1 visa. The document required - “The original and photocopy of your residence permit in the US.” I do not have any official paper called residence permit, is the L1 visa on my passport sufficient?
3) If I submit the documents to Chinese Embassy in New York, do I need to leave my old passport to the embassy? How long can I get my new passport?
4) My US L1 visa is on my old passport, does it mean I need to travel with old and new passport in the future?

1. Form ID 841 or persons aged 16 or above; Form ID 842 for children aged under 16; for replacement of a passport which has been lost/damaged/defaced/is not available, applicants should complete an additional application form ID645; for amendment of personal particulars in the passport, applicants should complete application form ID854.

2. The L1 visa is sufficient.

3. You need to leave your old passport to the embassy. The processing may take 4 to 8 weeks.

4. Please consult the US visa affair at a retive bureau,
