The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Passport (Chinese: 香港特別行政區護照) is a passport issued only to permanent residents of Hong Kong who also hold Chinese citizenship.[2] In accordance with the Basic Law of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, since the transfer of sovereignty on 1 July 1997, the passport has been issued by the Immigration Department of the Government of Hong Kong under the authorisation of the Central People's Government of the People's Republic of China. As the official languages of Hong Kong are Chinese and English, the passport is printed bilingually in both Chinese (traditional characters) and English. In addition, unlike Chinese passport which can be issued by Chinese consulates abroad, the Immigration Department (Hong Kong) is the only issuing authority for HKSAR passports.
