Latest arrangement on limited services of Official Receiver's Office
     To align with the special work arrangement announced by the Government today (February 7) and to further reduce the risk of the spread of the novel coronavirus in the community, the Official Receiver's Office (ORO) announced the provision of basic and limited public services to members of the public from February 10 until further notice as follows:

     The public services counter of the ORO on 10/F, High Block, Queensway Government Offices, 66 Queensway, Hong Kong will be open on Monday, Wednesday and Friday between 9.30am-12.30pm and 2pm-4pm. In view of the suspension of the court services, receipt of petition and deposit from petitioner, and attestation service for self-petition will continue to be suspended until further notice. All other offices of the ORO will be open between 9.30am-12.30pm and 2pm-4pm from Monday to Friday.

     The waiting/processing time for the services provided by the ORO may be longer as the provision of services is scaled down.
