     The Director of the Immigration, Mr Benson Kwok, held a video conference with the Commissioner of the Public Security Police Force of the Macao Special Administrative Region, Mr Ng Kam-wa, yesterday (December 5) to discuss the immigration arrangements on the polling day of the 2023 District Council Ordinary Election.
     The two parties agreed in the meeting that immigration authorities of both sides will maintain close liaison to ensure smooth passenger traffic on the polling day, and will expedite the handling of cases of expired or lost travel documents relating to Hong Kong residents. The Immigration Department (ImmD) will also continue to exercise and maintain effective immigration control to facilitate the visit of genuine travellers and keep out undesirables.
     Moreover, Mr Kwok also visited the Express Rail Link West Kowloon Control Point and held a video conference with commanders of control points on Monday (December 4) to understand the preparation works at control points for the polling day. The ImmD will arrange flexible staff deployment and operate extra clearance counters and kiosks on the polling day to enable voters returning to Hong Kong from the Mainland, Macao and overseas to cast their votes.
     The ImmD appeals to voters to vote enthusiastically at the District Council election on December 10, fulfil their civic responsibility, and work together to build a better community for Hong Kong.
