    They need a China ID card which needs to be periodically renewed.

    So if the person is a HKSAR passport holder and does not hold a home return permit (maybe not ethnic Chinese?), do they need to get / can they get a Chinese visa?

    In a word, no. They must apply for the return home permit.

    Claire - that's for exit and entry via HK Immigration and is not required for holders of HKID card.

    HK re-entry permit are for, surprise, surprise, re-entry into Hong Kong.

    ??? I am a holder of HKID, "return home permit" and HKSAR passport. Everytime I go to China, I must use my HKID at the HK immigration, then use my "return home permit" to get into China at the Chinese immigration. When I come back, I use my "return home permit" at the Chinese immigration again, then my HKID for HK immigration.

    The HKSAR passport is NO USE for getting into China (or Macau, for that matter).

    They don't call ??? anymore. Instead, they are now called ??? which can be obtained from China Travel Services in HKG. Before I can get ???, I must get the SAR passport first. I was not born in HKG. ??? is a plastic card which looks like the regular Chinese ID card with passport-like encoding.

    Last year when I went back to HKG, I just had enough time for the SAR passport. My next trip may go to China first then to HKG. It seems ironic that a legal Chinese citizen, having abode right in Chinese soil, holding a Chinese government issued passport, still requires visa to enter China.

    Besides, China visa is not cheap.
