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

Voucher collection deadline extended

The Government announced today that it will extend the deadline for Octopus card users to tap their cards for collecting consumption vouchers to September 30, 2022.   The original arrangement requires people who collect the vouchers via Octopus to tap their cards to collect the vouchers within three months after the disbursement date of each instalment as the uncollected voucher value will become invalid after the deadline.   Hence, those who were disbursed with the first vouchers on August 1 via Octopus cards must tap their cards to collect the vouchers by October 31.   As a small number of people have not yet tapped their cards to collect the vouchers and in view of the same situation possibly occurring again, the collection period will be extended to September 30, 2022 regardless of batches and instalments.   The arrangement aims to spare the public the need to calculate the collection periods for vouchers disbursed at different times.   This change will not affect the other existing arrangements for disbursing vouchers via Octopus to eligible people, the Government added.   Click here or call 18 5000 to enquire about the Consumption Voucher Scheme.
