The applicant must submit the needed documents in person and pay a license fee. The renewal of the plumber license is possible.
The Water Authority in Hong Kong will also approve equivalent qualifications for plumbers. For example, a Plumbing Certificate issued by the City and Guilds of London is acceptable.
