Re. Real name registration (RNR)
Starting 1st Mar, 2022, new activations have to register their name before they can use the service in Hong Kong
For those who are already using their service, they have 360 days (i.e. until Feb 23, 2023) to register
Use this LINK or use My3 app
Passport is required, or Hong Kong ID card if you have one. No driver’s licenses.
You do not need to register if you do not plan to use your SIM card in Hong Kong/Bay Area.

*3HK FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

UPDATE: S21 has esim enabled after the latest carrier Android 12 update.

*Tik Tok Does Not Work with iOS and Samsung Phones with 3HK
– Tik Tok is officially banned in Hong Kong. When the 3HK eSim profile is active/inactive, Tik Tok does not work on WiFi or Mobile Data on iOS and Samsung Android phones.
