Persons born in the year of 1985 or 1986 have to replace their smart identity card from 21 January to 30 March 2019.
The Territory-wide Identity Card Replacement Exercise has commenced on 27 December 2018. All smart Hong Kong identity card holders will be invited by phases, i.e. the call up programme, to have their existing smart HKICs replaced at the dedicated smart identity card replacement centres.
The new Smart Identity Card has been introduced on 26 November 2018. Its security features, card durability as well as chip technology on personal data protection have been enhanced.
