obtaining an ID card has been quite the hassle for me. my parents are both born in HK, i'm 24 yrs old. they returned to HK after 30 yrs and got their ID cards. by HK basic law, i qualified and also had to return to HK just to drop off my application for verification that i am eligible. that takes 8 weeks. once that is approved, i will obtain my card and hopefully by then my PPL will be complete and then the big application will be submitted
if you need any info about the ID card, feel free to email me.
