Welcome to the homepage of the Protocol Division.
Our Division comes under the Administration Wing of the Chief Secretary for Administration's Office, Government Secretariat. There are 17 of us in the Division, including the Director of Protocol, and the Deputy Director of Protocol.
We are responsible for liaising with and providing host government services to the sizeable Consular Corps represented in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. For a non-capital city, we have in Hong Kong one of the largest foreign representation in the world. On behalf of the Government, we extend courtesies to visiting national and international dignitaries, plan and co-ordinate official visits to Hong Kong by royalties and senior government leaders of foreign countries, and monitor the service provided by the Government VIP Lounge at the Airport. We are also responsible for administering the local honours and awards system and advising on the precedence, protocolaire matters and flag etiquette.
We aim at providing a web site with useful information relating to our subject areas -
- Consular Posts and Officially Recognised Representatives
- VIP Visits
- Flags & Emblems
- Precedence List
- Honours and Awards
If you are looking for information or access to individual Consular Posts in Hong Kong, you can use the hypertext link to the websites of the respective Consular Posts in the Consular Posts and Officially Recognised Representatives section.
We welcome your comments and suggestions on our homepage or any other issues which are relevant to our areas of responsibilities.
Mrs. Judy LI
Director of Protocol
