Shenzhen Bay Control Point (Chinese: 深圳灣管制站) is a Hong Kong immigration control point on its border with mainland China. It is housed in the same building with its mainland Chinese counterpart, the Shenzhen Bay Port.

Located geographically in Dongjiaotou, Shekou on the southwestern corner of the city of Shenzhen in the Guangdong Province of mainland China, the Shenzhen Bay Control Point is the only border control point where co-location clearance is practised. The Hong Kong portion of the building and its adjacent open area, together with the northern third of the Western Corridor Bridge, are leased to Hong Kong and made within Hong Kong's jurisdiction for an initial period until 30 June 2047. As such, Hong Kong laws apply, instead of PRC laws.

It is connected to Ngau Hom Shek, Yuen Long District, New Territories, Hong Kong through the Hong Kong-Shenzhen Western Corridor.[1] It was commissioned on 1 July 2007.

The co-location of immigration and customs facilities with the mainland counterpart, the Shenzhen Bay Port, allows passengers and vehicles for departure and arrival clearance to take place within a short distance.[2][3]

Electricity on the Hong Kong part of the building is supplied by Hong Kong's CLP Power. It is also covered by Hong Kong's mobile phone and fixed-line telephone networks.

The control point is surrounded by mainland China and the closed area without being contiguously attached to another part of Hong Kong, except the bridge. Because it is a leased territory, it is legally part of Guangdong Province and thus not an exclave of Hong Kong. However, it is administered as a part of Hong Kong SAR and the Hong Kong Government exercises full jurisdiction within the area.

Closed Area[edit]

Like all other immigration control points located along the land border of Hong Kong, Shenzhen Bay Control Point lies within the Closed Area. Vehicles other than taxis require a Closed Road Permit from the Hong Kong Police Force to get in.[4]
