What is Electronic Business System (eBS)?

The Marine Department (MD) of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region is the administrator of the port of Hong Kong and is responsible for all navigational matters in Hong Kong for ensuring safe operation of the port and shipping in Hong Kong waters and administering the Hong Kong Shipping Register.

In order to support Hong Kong as a major international shipping center and as a hub port for China and world trade, MD has launched the eBS to provide a new means for the shipping agents and citizens to handle port formalities and other shipping related activities in contrast to the conventional counter services.  Nevertheless, the conventional counter service is still available to the public.

The eBS provides a one-stop solution to simplify and speed up the submission and processing of port formalities without incurring additional charge to the shipping agents and companies.  It also covers formalities required by the Immigration Department (ImmD) and the Department of Health.
