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

Govt to update COVID-19 jab records

The Food & Health Bureau is in the process of updating Hong Kong’s COVID-19 vaccination records to meet international travel rules, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government announced today.   The UK government declared that from 4am on October 4, the rules for international travel to England will change from the red, amber or green three-tier traffic light system to a single red list.   Except for those who have UK residence rights, people who have been to places on the red list in the past 10 days will be denied entry to England.   Hong Kong is currently on the green list.   Under the revised system, to be exempted from quarantine, people arriving in England from Hong Kong are required to have completed a vaccination course of a specified COVID-19 vaccine by the relevant health authorities in an approved place at least 14 days prior to arrival and get tested on the second day of arrival.   Additionally, the vaccinated person’s date of birth must be shown on the vaccination record.   Those who have not completed vaccination will need to undergo self-quarantine for 10 days and get tested on the second and eighth days of arrival.   The Hong Kong SAR Government said it has been made aware of the changes in travel rules to England and explained that the bureau is working out the arrangements to add the date of birth to the vaccination records in order to comply with the UK government’s latest requirements.   Details will be announced once the arrangement is in place, it added.
