Has any one used the fast track service at the airport.

We are a family of 4 and would like to no if any body has used the fast track service through immigration and if so how was it and how much did it cost.

I could be wrong, but from memory the Fast Track is only available to frequent travelers through HKIA. It is free, but you have to show some proof of how often you fly through HKIA. You can apply at immigration at the airport.

You cannot pay for access to use the fast track lane in HK. As HK71 said, it is for frequent travelers holding the Frequent Visitor Card which needs to be applied. My American business colleague has one of those and loves it.

Otherwise, if you are a holder of the APEC card, you can use the lanes designated for residents. APEC is another card that needs to be applied but it's really for travelers from the APEC (Pacific rim) countries.

I'm sure this varies WIDELY, but when I went through, the line managers didn't respect the fast track, even diverting families through it/them for the sake of convenience. Then they got really clogged and it made no sense.

At many immigration controls worldwide, the staff often divert some people to these special lanes when the other lines become very long while the fast track lane has virtually no one.
