Baby Born in Hong Kong to a Foreign National Temporary Resident – How To Complete the Dependant Visa Process
Posted by The Visa Geeza / in Family Visas, Feature Article, Musing / 3 responses
When a baby is born here to a temporary (i.e. non permanent) resident how do you go about finalising the immigration formalities associated with the birth in the HKSAR?
This is a straightforward process not otherwise detailed in the dependant visa section of the Hong Kong Visa Handbook – so here you go:
Firstly, make sure you register the birth within 42 days. This short video teaches you how:
1– Copy of the baby’s Hong Kong birth certificate
2– Copy of the baby’s passport
3– Copy of parents’ Marriage Certificate
4– Copy of father’s passport bio details and current visa label pages
5– Copy of mother’s passport bio details and current visa label pages
6– Copy of HKID card for both parents
7– Original HKID235B (baby’s Permit to Remain – issued by ImmD at the time you registered the birth and secured the birth certificate) along with a copy
8– Completed Transfer of Endorsement form
Time to Complete
