Outbound travelers can now complete their departure process at different checkpoints of the Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA).

Hong Kong residents can check in their flight details by using the Smart Check-in kiosks, which Airport Authority Hong Kong (AAHK) refers to as the “Flight Token.”

Travelers will no longer have to show their identity documents whenever they pass through different checkpoints at the airport.

Starting Oct. 25, the Flight Token begins along with the launch of the Immigration Department’s “Flight token e-Channel” service.

Hong Kong residents ages 11 and above may register for the Flight Token throughout their entire departure with participating airlines.

They should use their HKSAR passport or HKSAR document of Identity for Visa Purposes, or Hong Kong and Macau Residents’ Entry and Exit Permit, also known as the “Home Visit Permit.”

Other passport holders can also register for the Flight Token except for their departure clearance checkpoint of the Immigration Department.

“With the relaxation of quarantine requirements, many local residents are once again traveling through HKIA,” said Vivian Cheung, executive director, Airport Operations of AAHK.

“To welcome them back, HKIA has implemented Flight Token in full, offering a pleasant and convenient departure experience. We will continue to work with our partners to enhance our services and offer passengers an even more enjoyable airport journey.”

Flight Token e-Channels are available at the North and South Departure of the Immigration Halls. Meanwhile, departure gates at Terminal 1 will have e-Boarding Gates.
