Residents can apply for visa endorsements online
Entry and exit authorities have already shortened the time for approving visa endorsements for travel permits going to Hong Kong to three days. These move is one measure implemented by the police to benefit residents.
Interested applicants can submit applications by logging onto the official websites. A resident that mails their applications and apply online will receive endorsements in merely three days. Those applying at entry and exit halls in districts can apply online by using the online application machines that are placed and installed at the entry and exit halls that are open for 24 hours.
Residents applying at exit-entry halls in each district can now apply online instead. They could also use online application machines installed at the halls, which are now open 24 hours a day. Shenzhen residents that don’t have Guangdong hukou needs to make a reservation online before applying for a travel permit going to Hong Kong.
They need to check if they are qualified to apply for the permits, before they are allowed to make appointments. Online reservations will cut down the queuing time since processing of visas of residents applying for travel permits takes fifteen working days.
