HONG KONG – Applications for 300 regular quotas for Hong Kong cross-boundary non-commercial private cars using the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge (HZMB) to Macao will open on June 23, the city’s Transport Department announced Wednesday.
Quota holders are expected to be able to travel via the HZMB from Oct 24 this year, the Transport Department said
The 300 existing quotas, which were introduced in 2018, will be re-allocated through open application as they are expiring on Oct 23, the department said in a statement.
The new batch of 300 quotas, half for company applicants and the remaining for individual applicants, will be valid until Oct 23, 2024.
Quota holders are expected to be able to travel via the HZMB from Oct 24 this year, the statement reads.
Private cars allocated under the Hong Kong quotas will be permitted to access Macao multiple times via the HZMB, the department added.
The company quota is open to companies registered in both Hong Kong and Macao or those registered in Hong Kong and associated with another company registered in Macao. The quota for individuals is open to Hong Kong permanent residents employed with remuneration in Macao or who have established a registered company in Macao.
The deadline for submission of applications is July 7, 2021.
