    HK ID card/passport for baby

    We're thinking of going to Macau in July, baby will be 5 months then, does she need a HKID card or a passport for this, or both?

    kids under 11 year olds do not get a HKID card.

    best is to get a passport for her and apply to the immigration office for a sticker which states that she is eligible for a permanent HKID card. after you get the sticker, you affix that to a blank page of the passport and you're set for macau. if the sticker doesn't come through in time then you can travel with her passport and her HK birth certificate (that's what i learnt recently too).

    really? hmmm....maybe it's due to the fact that the parents hold foreign passports. i got this off the immigration website:

    Children under the age of 11 with their Hong Kong permanent resident status established as indicated in their Hong Kong birth certificates normally need not apply for verification of eligibility for permanent identity card. They may apply for permanent identity card directly when they reach the age of 11. Such children if holding valid foreign travel documents may apply for an endorsement to be made in their travel documents stating their eligibility for a permanent identity card verified for travel convenience. Such application can be made by way of submitting an application for verification of eligibility for permanent identity card by their parents or guardians.

    you'd have to travel with the passport anyways (though I have both for my 2 kids) since the HKID does not include a picture...when I went to Macau with my 2 kids (both under 2), even though I used the HKID for both, I had to bring along the passport as well to show them the picture on it . it is easy to get both in HK -very efficient.

    to my understanding, kids who are eligible to apply for HKSAR pp can get a HKID card but not those kids with foreign pp. not sure which passports the OP holds.....

    you're right about that...it DOES depend on whether you hold a foreign passport....
