Renewal Application

If applicants would like to renew the validity period of the checking code, please make an advance booking through Auto-Telephone Answering System (ATAS) (Tel.: 3660 7499) within the last three months of the validity period. When applicants book for an appointment, please use the first eight digits of the checking code as the identification code for booking. The available appointment date is any working day within the last three months of the validity period. Applicants should then bring along with them Hong Kong Identity Card to attend the Sexual Conviction Record Check Office in person on the day of appointment to submit a request for renewal and pay the prescribed renewal fee.

After renewal, the validity period will be extended for another 12 months counting from the original expiry date. Applicants or the persons authorised by the applicants will be able to access the check result using the original checking code during the renewal period. Please note that if the checking code has expired, we could not process the request for renewal and applicants have to submit a fresh application for the checking.
