A payment receipt should be produced within the specified period of time. The booking process will be completed upon issuance of a booking confirmation by the department.   If any reservations are cancelled by applicants, the rooms will be available for booking again.   The above arrangement is applicable to helpers who have been fully vaccinated in Group A specified places.   As for helpers who have received full vaccination in Hong Kong, they may undergo compulsory quarantine at a general designated quarantine hotel.   Call 2717 1771 or email the department for enquiries.
