The Guangdong Provincial Public Security Department is now accepting new applications. Upon approval, applicants will need to apply for closed road permits from the Transport Department’s Cross Boundary Unit. 

Applicants will then need to complete all the formalities in both the Mainland and Hong Kong before they can drive across the boundary. 

“They are reminded to ensure compliance with the Mainland's prevailing entry controls and anti-epidemic measures before going to the Mainland,” the Transport Department said.

Moreover, the two governments have also agreed to increase the quota for Mainland cross-boundary private cars using the bridge by a maximum of 50 per month. This will likewise be on a trial basis for 12 months tentatively.
