TRANSIT SERVICES ARE BACK
The opening up will be operated gradually. Transit through the airport to and from the mainland will not be allowed in the first phase.
The no-entry restriction for non-Hong Kong residents from overseas remains unchanged according to Hong Kong SAR Government. Here are the detailed measures effective from March 25:
All non-Hong Kong residents coming from the Mainland, Macao and Taiwan will be subject to a 14-day compulsory quarantine after entering Hong Kong, but entry will be denied if any non-Hong Kong resident has been to any overseas countries/regions in the 14 days prior to arrival in Hong Kong.
Cross-boundary land transport and cross-boundary ferry transfer services are suspended for all passengers at Hong Kong International Airport.
At a press conference yesterday afternoon, the city’s Secretary for Food and Health Sophia Chan announced the extension, saying the city government is considering relaxing restrictions on arrivals from outside in a bid to exchange economic activities.
Starting from Feb 8, Hong Kong has been requiring all inbound travelers entering Hong Kong from the mainland, including both Hong Kong residents and non-Hong Kong residents, to undergo a mandatory quarantine for 14 days.
According to Chan, certain groups of people can be exempted, including cross-boundary students and businessmen. Detailed measures will be released soon.
