- Fees: The application fee is US$110 for applicants over 16 and US$115 for children under 16.
Beginning December 27, 2021, the passport security surcharge will increase by $20. The new application fee will be US$130 for adult applicants and US$135 for children under 16. For more details, please see Fees/Payment.
Payment options are as follows:
- U.S. or local currency cash
- Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express or Diners Club. All credit card transactions are in U.S. dollars, as if the transaction occurred in the United States.

The passport application will be sent to the United States for printing. You should allow 2-3 weeks for your application to be processed. If you will be traveling sooner than that, you should request an emergency one-year passport for immediate travel, which you can replace with a full-validity passport when you conclude your immediate travel.
Purchasing an envelope for passport return
You should provide us with an envelope so that we can mail you your new passport once we receive it from the printing center in the United States. It needs to have postage to cover delivery from the Consulate in Hong Kong to your home address in either Hong Kong or Macau. To learn more, see our purchasing an envelope for passport return page
Picking up a passport in lieu of mail return
In light of security procedures and COVID social distancing measures, which encourage us to have fewer people in our waiting room, our default procedure will always be to mail you back your new passport. We will follow this procedure unless you specifically request otherwise.
Since we are not able to mail new passports outside of our consular district, people applying for passports who do not have mailing addresses in Hong Kong or Macau will be required to collect new passports in person. If you are supposed to do an in-person pick-up but are unable to do so, you may send a third party to the Consulate to collect the passport for you. Please provide this person with the receipt and a signed permission note.
New passports that are not collected within 90 days will, according to regulations, be returned to Washington, DC, and you will have to restart the process, including paying the fee again.
