HONG KONG UPDATE
Hong Kong remains a welcoming city for tourists and investors, and a safe place for travellers from around the world.
Hong Kong has a long tradition of peaceful and orderly processions. However, in recent months, some protesters have become violent, blocked roadways, vandalised property and confronted Police in unlawful assemblies. The Police will enforce the law strictly and resolutely.
Although the impact of these illegal confrontations is generally not widespread, it may cause inconvenience to some visitors including disruptions to transport services.
The Airport Authority Hong Kong has obtained an interim injunction and implemented access control measures to ensure the smooth operation of the airport. Travellers are advised to check with their airlines before proceeding to the airport and to keep an eye on the Airport website.
The Mass Transit Railway Corporation (MTRC) has obtained an interim injunction order to restrain people from unlawfully and willfully obstructing or interfering with the proper use and operation of the railway, damaging property or causing disturbance at any MTR station. Please check the MTR website for updates.
The HKSAR Government maintains close contact with the diplomatic corps and foreign chambers of commerce in Hong Kong about the situation.
Travel agents, hotels and business organisations are providing advice and making arrangements to minimise any possible disruptions to visitors.
The Government, the business sector - in particular the tourism, convention and exhibition, retail and food and beverage sectors - as well as the community at large, all stand ready to welcome and assist visitors to Hong Kong any time.
This online portal provides useful and timely information for travellers and residents and includes transport updates, clarifications of fake news, government press releases, and information on conferences and events.
The BrandHK website also contains a wealth of information about the strengths and advantages of Hong Kong in areas such as business, finance, innovation and technology and arts and culture.
