Australian Immigration - Biometric Data Collection
Stories carried in Hong Kong media recently carry misleading information about the introduction of biometric data collection for people applying for visas to Australia. Holders of Hong Kong SAR, Macau SAR, British National Overseas, and People’s Republic of China passports (among others) DO NOT need to provide biometric data when applying for visas to Australia in Hong Kong. Visa or travel authority application procedures for the above passport holders have not changed. While biometric data collection exemptions apply to several countries’ passport holders, in rare circumstances some visa applicants from these countries may still be required to undertake biometric collection in Hong Kong. These people will be notified directly. For information on visas, visit the Australian Visa Application Centre website: www.vfsglobal.com/australia/hongkong
