The "Come2hk" scheme for mainlanders to travel to the SAR will commence next Wednesday.
Non-Hong Kong residents, including mainlanders and expatriates who live and work in the mainland, will be able to come to Hong Kong without undergoing compulsory quarantine.
There will be a daily quota of 2,000 for the scheme, with 1,000 each for the Shenzhen Bay Port and the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge Hong Kong Port.
The new schedule from Zhuhai to Hong Kong will be adjusted to 10.30 am, 11.30 am, 12:30 pm, 1.30 pm, 2.30 pm, 3.30 pm, 4.30 pm, 5.30 pm, 6.30 pm, and 8.00 pm. Other routes and timetables will remain unchanged.
For passengers who have already booked tickets for travel from next Wednesday to September 19, if the travel time does not coincide with the adjusted schedule, they will have to book again through the WeChat official accounts or the official website for pandemic control reasons.
The original tickets will be refunded in full automatically through the electronic payment system that was used for the original purchase.
The COVID-19 pandemic just became the worst pandemic in US history, surpassing the death toll from the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic.
