For Immediate Release
The Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce (HKGCC) welcomes today’s announcement that the “Come2HK” scheme, which will allow non-Hong Kong residents from the Mainland and Macao to come to Hong Kong without the need for quarantine, will begin on 15 September.
“We are pleased to see this significant step towards the reopening of our border with the Mainland,” said HKGCC Chairman Peter Wong. “We hope that the quota of 2,000 people per day will be expanded in the near future.
“We also hope that the scheme will become reciprocal so that Hong Kong citizens and Mainlanders can travel between Hong Kong and other Mainland cities without the need for quarantine.”
The Government also announced the resumption of the “Return2HK” scheme from tomorrow (8 September), which allows Hong Kong residents to return from the Mainland and Macao without quarantine requirements.
The number of Covid cases has been stable for some time in both Hong Kong and the Mainland, so the Chamber believes it makes sense to allow people to cross the border for business, travel and family reunions.
As more and more people are getting vaccinated in Hong Kong and globally, HKGCC believes it is time to start planning to reopen our borders further to enable the return of normal business operations.
