Estate Agent Card

The estate agent card is made available to holders of a valid salesperson's licence or estate agent's licence (individual) as a convenient means of identification. The card is not a replacement of the licence. Licensees will find it advantageous to display the card while at work, especially when away from their offices, so as to enable consumers to recognize them at once as licensed practitioners. In fact, Practice Circular 10-02 stipulates that practitioners working in first-sale sites must wear an estate agent card.

The card features the name of the licensee and the type, number and expiry date of the licence. The card also carries the photograph of the licensee.

Licensees are given a card free of charge. To be issued with a card, a first-time applicant should attach a photograph to the licence application form with the following specifications:
  • 40 mm (W) x 50 mm (H)
  • Size from chin to crown: 32 mm to 36 mm
  • Recent colour photograph showing full frontal face with clear facial features
  • Plain white background
The above specifications are the same as those for a HKSAR passport. Licensees may not be issued a card if the specifications of the photograph provided do not meet those stated above.

Licensees applying for renewal of their licences do not need to provide a new photograph. They will be given a new card if they have obtained a card before.

If the card is lost or damaged or if the licensee would like to have his photograph updated, a re-issuance application may be made by submitting a completed application form with the required fee of $100.

For enquiries, please call 2111 2777 (press 2, 2 after selecting language).
