Hong Kong Citizenship by Birth

An application for a Passport by Birth in Hong Kong is based on a valid Birth Certificate in Hong Kong. It is the most common form of application for Citizenship of Hong Kong. Hong Kong Nationality gives the right to hold a passport, free travel in and out of the country and the right to work.

Your parents must have been legally married at the time of your birth.

You must renounce citizenship of any other country, as Hong Kong only allows a citizen to hold one passport.

This stems from Britain’s collection of British Colonies, British Protectorates and British Protected States in the middle of last century and the Nationality rules concerning what are now the countries of the Commonwealth.
