Frequent visitor e-channel at Lo Wu

I've been happily using the e-channel at HKIA for a while. My next trip sees me hopping back and forth to Shenzhen. There is nothing on the immigration website to say I can't use e-channel at a land border. Is this correct?

Unless you have an HKID card (for HK residents) you'll need to use the regular immigration lanes at land crossings.

Consider using the checkpoint at Futian instead of Luohu as the queues tend to be shorter, at least that's been my own experience. Depends on the time of day, of course.

I was told the same. Frequent traveller channel only counts in HKIA, not at the ferry, train or other land boarder!

Indeed, no e-channel at the land borders. However you can use it when entering by air and exiting overland (or vice versa) which is helpful.

Technically, there are e-Channels but they're for HKID holders only (and in the next few months, eligible visitors from the Mainland).
