Distribution of ‘Health Declaration Forms on Entry’ at all East Rail stations
To facilitate the implementation of the health declaration policy of Shenzhen authorities for inbound travelers, the Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation (KCRC) will distribute ‘Health Declaration Form’ at the ticket office of all East Rail stations, the Customer Services Centres located at Hung Hom, Shatin, Tai Po Market, Sheung Shui and Lo Wu stations and the Fare Adjustment Office of Lo Wu Station.
A spokesman for the KCRC reminded passengers to complete the Health Declaration Form before arriving at the Shenzhen boundary. The spokesman added that close coordination will be maintained with government departments and the boundary authorities so that train services will be regulated to tie in with the handling capacity of the boundary authorities both on the Hong Kong and Shenzhen sides during Easter holiday period.
The boundary at Lo Wu is open from 6:30 am to 12 midnight. The first northbound train departs from Hung Hom Station at 5:30 am, while the last northbound train that cross-boundary passengers can take departs from Hung Hom Station at 11:07 pm.
