Asked by Mr. humphrey
I’m based in Hong Kong. I would want to know about the new passports. Pls can anybody help me with the information? I am trying to get it but I can not
Answered by Mrs. Ceile
I find that there is no consulate-general in Hong Kong. Maybe you have to renew your passport in your home country, since you will have to apply for a visa if you renew your passport at your Embassy in Beijing or Zambia’s oversea commissions in other countries or regions near to Hong Kong.
