Latest arrangements for HAD services

     To align with the implementation of targeted measures to reduce social contact and other infection control measures as well as gradually resume more public services by the Government in an orderly manner, the Home Affairs Department (HAD) announced today (March 14) the latest arrangements for its services from March 16 (Monday). The details are listed below.

     The operating hours of the Home Affairs Enquiry Centres (except for the Sham Shui Po Home Affairs Enquiry Centre, which closed earlier for maintenance works) and the Estate Beneficiaries Support Unit will return to normal.

     The multi-purpose halls of all community halls and community centres will continue to be open to organisations with approved bookings, with limits on the number of participants for activities to be held in order to ensure that appropriate social distancing can be maintained among them.

     The operation of the HAD's enquiry hotline (2835 2500) and the services provided by the Office of the Licensing Authority returned to normal earlier.
