More HZMB private car quotas set

The governments of Hong Kong and Macau have agreed to increase the regular quotas for Hong Kong cross-boundary non-commercial private cars using the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge to Macau, the Transport Department announced today.   The decision was made to enhance traffic flow between Hong Kong and Macau, better utilising the bridge, the department said.   It will increase the Hong Kong quota by 1,000, following the earlier quota allocation of 1,800 for Hong Kong.   The additional quota will be distributed in two phases from the second quarter.   Half of the additional 1,000 quota allocations is for company applicants and the other half is for individual applicants. The quotas are valid for no more than three years. The eligibility criteria of quota applications remains the same.   Private cars allocated with Hong Kong quotas will be permitted to access the city of Macau multiple times using the bridge.   The Hong Kong quota allotments will be re-allocated upon expiry thro

High-risk place list updated

The Government announced today it will specify Cambodia, Thailand and Vietnam as high-risk specified places with effect from June 4. The boarding and quarantine requirements for people arriving from these places will be adjusted.   The adjustment was made upon close monitoring of the epidemic developments in relevant places, the prevalence of mutant virus strains and the case importation risks that may pose to Hong Kong.   People who have stayed in high-risk specified places on the day of boarding or during the 14 days before that day will have to present at boarding a negative result proof of a nucleic acid test for COVID-19 conducted within 72 hours before the scheduled time of the aircraft's departure, as well as the confirmation of a room reservation in a designated quarantine hotel in Hong Kong.    Those who have been fully vaccinated will be subject to a 14-day compulsory quarantine at designated quarantine hotels, with three tests to be conducted during the period, followed by a seven-day self-monitoring period as well as compulsory testing on the 16th and 19th day of arrival in Hong Kong.    Otherwise, they will be subject to a 21-day compulsory quarantine at designated quarantine hotels, with four tests to be conducted during the period.   Meanwhile, having considered the UK's continued rising vaccination rate and that there have been no imported cases since the resumption of passenger flights to Hong Kong, the Government will also specify the UK as a high-risk specified place from June 4 onwards.
