Hong Kong High-Speed Train Ticket Tips
Inside Hong Kong West Kowloon Railway Station, Hong Kong Port Area is located on floor B2 and the mainland Port Area is on floor B3. Passengers traveling between Hong Kong and Chinese mainland on high-speed trains can go through the adjacent entry and exit immigration channels there.
Therefore, for trains running from the mainland to Hong Kong, the immigration checks are processed at Hong Kong West Kowloon Railway Station after the trip.
China Railway currently offers an e-ticket service for most of the high-speed trains. Passengers can show their Chinese ID or passports to go through the security check and board the trains without having to collect paper train tickets.
However, for all Hong Kong tickets, you have to collect your paper tickets in advance. Hong Kong high-speed trains are not supported with an e-ticket service yet. Please leave time to collect your paper tickets at the train station.
Hong Kong train tickets have a special change and cancelation policy. For other domestic train tickets, it is possible to change your ticket to a later train on the same departure day, as long as there are available tickets.
However, Hong Kong train tickets cannot be changed in this way and China Railway refuses any change requests. It is smart to arrive at the correct departure railway station at least 1 hour in advance of the trip.
