Frequent visitors from the mainland to Hong Kong can use the self-service e-Channel, also known as the Automated Passenger Clearance System, to enter the special administrative region started on Jan. 3, 2012, a spokesperson of the Hong Kong Immigration Department said in a statement.

With the system, frequent travelers from the mainland no longer need to interact with an officer while entering Hong Kong.

The spokesperson said that eligible mainland visitors may enroll for the e-Channel service free of charge at control points located in Lok Ma Chau, Lo Wu, Shenzhen Bay, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong-Macau Ferry Terminal and Hong Kong International Airport.
