Requirement for cross-boundary goods vehicle drivers to present health proof when entering Shenzhen via Shenzhen ports

     The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Government noted today (April 3) that, for the purpose of strengthening the measures against COVID-19 infection as well as further protecting the health and safety of Shenzhen and Hong Kong residents and cross-boundary goods vehicle drivers, the Shenzhen Municipal Government will require all cross-boundary goods vehicle drivers who enter Shenzhen via Shenzhen ports to present the "i Shenzhen" health certification code and proof of a negative result of a nucleic acid test conducted within the previous seven days to Shenzhen customs officers for examination before entering Shenzhen from April 10 onwards. Cross-boundary goods vehicle drivers can undergo a nucleic acid test, either at the qualified medical institutions in Shenzhen and Hong Kong or at the site of Shenzhen ports, at their own cost.
     The HKSAR Government will continue to keep close contact with the Shenzhen authority and the trade, so as to ensure the normal operation of cross-boundary freight logistics.
