Dearest Embassy, all staffs and all your people,

I am a Hong Kong China resident and an amateur of travelling.

As my HKSAR passport has the word “CHINA” printed on the cover, for several times it was misunderstood as a China passport, and I was requested to produce a visa or to pay a costly fee for applying a visa when entering some countries, though these countries are visa-free access for HKSAR passport.

Around 3 months ago, I went to the consulate in Bamako, the capital in Mali, to verify my HKSAR passport. It was my fortune that you granted me an interview and listened to my explanation and most grateful that you issued a letter to me which confirmed the status of my passport.

Thanks to this letter, I could visa-free access your country and had a chance to experience the friendliness of your people. They were all helpful and sincere that I met. I spent a very happy and unforgettable holiday for a week in your country.

Take this opportunity, I would like to thank your people who had given a helping hand to me during my trip and wish your country a very prosperous future. I really appreciate the good quality of your people.

A Hong Kong Resident

HONG Wai-king
