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

Recognised jab record list updated

The Government announced that from September 22, it will accept vaccination records issued by Iran, Chile and New Zealand as recognised vaccination records for Hong Kong residents returning from Group A specified places.   Hong Kong residents holding vaccination records issued by the relevant authorities of these places in the prescribed formats can board a flight for Hong Kong from Group A specified places. The vaccines administered to the travellers must be those recognised by the Government.   Although Chile and New Zealand are currently not classified as a Group A specified place, the Government explained that the recognition arrangements will enable Hong Kong residents holding vaccination records issued by the two countries in the prescribed format to return to Hong Kong from Group A specified places.   Additionally, the Government said it will accept the vaccination records issued by Albania, Andorra, Faroe Islands, Israel, Monaco, Morocco and Panama as recognised vaccination records from September 22.   This follows the European Union’s recent announcement of recognising the vaccination records issued by those seven places as being equivalent to vaccination records issued by EU member states under the EU Digital COVID Certificate mechanism.   The Government announced earlier that it accepts vaccination records recognised under the mechanism as recognised vaccination records required for the purpose of boarding flights for Hong Kong from high-risk Group A specified places.   Click here for the updated list of places that are accepted for issuing recognised vaccination records.
