Faster Passport Control for Visitors Leaving Hong Kong

If you are visiting Hong Kong, your exit through passport control should be speedier than before thanks to a change at the airport.

When going through passport control, visitors aged eleven or above using a biometric passport issued by certain countries, can now use dedicated “Smart Departure” e-gates. They use facial recognition technology and you do not need to register to use them.

The full list of eligible countries is on the Immigration Department website.
