*Application process of overseas travel deposit certificates:

  1. You'll need to sign an agreement with us and the travel agency, which is known as a tripartite agreement. Visit your local branch with your ID, the tripartite agreement for overseas travel, deposit certificates signed by a travel agency, and any other documents required to open an account (not applicable to existing HSBC China customers). Make a deposit and get the certificate of deposit as a guarantee for the travel agency and the Frozen Deposit Certificate for visa applications for designated destinations. 
  2. The deposit will be frozen. You can choose to apply for the certificate of deposit as a financial guarantee to the travel agency and a certificate of frozen deposits for the visa application process. You can only apply for one of each for the deposited amount.
  3. Submit the original certificate to your travel agency.
  4. After your trip, your travel agency will return your original certificate and issue an unfreeze application. You can submit these 2 documents to us to unfreeze your travel deposit. Alternatively, your deposit will automatically be unfrozen on the expiry date specified in the tripartite agreement. 
  5. If the customer violates the tripartite agreement, such as by overstaying, the travel deposit will be transferred to the travel agency's appointed account upon receiving a breach of contract letter issued by the travel agency and the original certificate.
