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

Airport to roll out antibody testing

The Government today announced that the self-paid serology antibody testing service for eligible arrivals will be rolled out at the Hong Kong International Airport from August 18.   The antibody testing service is provided by private testing institutions.   The test result will be available in about two days, if it is positive, the Department of Health will contact the relevant persons through their designated quarantine hotels to shorten their compulsory quarantine period to seven days.   The cost of the remaining seven nights of room reservation can be refunded.   For people who have stayed in medium-risk groups of places on the day of arrival at Hong Kong or during the 14 days before that day, if they are fully vaccinated, have obtained a negative nucleic acid test result upon arrival at Hong Kong and possess a positive result proof of a recognised serology antibody test, their compulsory quarantine period in designated quarantine hotels can be adjusted to seven days, followed by a seven-day self-monitoring period.   They have to undergo two nucleic acid tests during the seven-day compulsory quarantine period, and undergo compulsory testing on the ninth, 12th, 16th and 19th days of arrival at Hong Kong.   The Government reminded people who choose to undergo self-paid serology antibody testing at the airport they will still be required to present at boarding the confirmation of a room reservation of no less than 14 nights in a designated quarantine hotel in Hong Kong, or they will not be allowed to board flights for Hong Kong.   The Government announced earlier it will re-categorise overseas places into high-risk, medium-risk and low-risk groups, and implement boarding, quarantine and testing requirements based on the risk levels under the vaccine bubble concept and risk-based principle from August 9.
