Hi, I will be visiting Hong Kong again in the very near future (4th time in 4 years), and I am interested in getting access to the Hong Kong Frequent Visitor e-channel.
After reading your story from the 5th October 2012 (http://www.ausbt.com.au/fast-track-for-frequent-flyers-at-hong-kong-airport), I just want to confirm from someone who has done this or knows a bit about it, who is eligible?
I am currently a Qantas Silver Frequent Flyer, as well as a Green CX Marco Polo Club Member, are either or both of these eligible for the e-channel service?

Daniel: as our article (http://www.ausbt.com.au/fast-track-for-frequent-flyers-at-hong-kong-airport) states (and we got this information direct from the HK authorities), all Cathay Pacific Marco Polo members are eligible to get approval to use the Hong Kong Frequent Visitor e-channel.
[That's a fairly generous allowance for HK's home carrier, as with many other airlines – including Qantas – access is limited to top-tier frequent flyers (eg Qantas Gold and above).]
The process is pretty fast and painless, as long as you arrive when the office (which is airside, before baggage claim) is open.

Note that the wait to sign up can be long.. There are only 2 booths at HKIA now (used to be 4) and generally only staffed by one officer each.
