Procedures and Charges

Requests for information held by the EAA which is not published or made available routinely may be made verbally by calling EAA’s hotline at 2111-2777 or by email, letter or application form.

Oral requests may only be acceded to where the information sought can be provided readily, simply and in a straightforward manner, such as by oral replies or provision of leaflets or standard forms. EAA staff may, however, ask for an oral request to be made in writing (including by email, letter or application form) where necessary or appropriate. The application form is obtainable from the EAA at Room 2601, 26/F, Hopewell Centre, 183 Queen’s Road East, Wanchai, Hong Kong, or you may download it here. All written requests made by email, letter or application form should be addressed to the Access to Information Officer.

Processing requests for information requires use of EAA resources. A processing fee of HK$50.00, subject to revision, is required to be payable for each piece of information requested in writing and must accompany the request for information or, at the discretion of the EAA, be paid before the release of information.

Other than publications which are available free of charge or at cost specified (while stock lasts), photocopying charge and black and white printouts of information will also be levied at HK$1.00 per page of A4 size and HK$1.50 per page of A3 size, subject to revision. Information available at this website can be downloaded free of charge (subject to the copyright restrictions set out at this website).
