Hong Kong extends Return2hk scheme for residents from China

Hong Kong residents may return to the city between 29 April to 16 May.

The government has announced the extension of the Return2hk Travel Scheme that allows Hong Kong residents in Mainland China to return without undergoing quarantine, starting 29 April.

The residents may return through Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) or any existing land boundary control points on their selected date between 29 April to 16 May. This will also cover residents coming from Macau.

“The Scheme has been operating smoothly,” a government spokesman said, noting 135,900 passenger trips have been made by Hong Kong residents to return to Hong Kong under the Scheme.

The government also opted to extend the scheme, considering the Covid-19 situation in Mainland has been under control.

To control the arrival of Hong Kong residents, the government has set a daily quota of 1,000 for HKIA; whilst it will maintain the 3,000 per day quota for the Shenzhen Bay Port, and 2,000 for the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge.

Residents, aged 18 or above, must apply to be a part of the scheme via an online booking system. They may also apply for three accompanying Hong Kong residents in one booking.

The government noted residents availing the scheme must have no travel history outside of Mainland or Macao in the past 14 days before their selected date of arrival.

Moreover, it noted that those entering Hong Kong via HKIA will be required to take the COVID-19 RT-PCR test and obtain an original copy of a paper-based proof of a valid negative test result.

Meanwhile, those returning via land boundary points will also be required to take a test, which should be taken on the day of the arrival or within three days prior.
