Foreign domestic helpers (FDHs) who received full vaccination in regions where Hong Kong has reached a recognition agreement arrangement on their vaccination records (the currently applicable regions include Bangladesh, Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Nepal, Pakistan, the Philippines and Sri Lanka etc.) may come to work in Hong Kong and must undergo compulsory quarantine at a designated quarantine facility. As for FDHs who have received full vaccination in Hong Kong, Mainland, Macao or at places of stringent regulatory authorities designated by the World Health Organisation (including Thailand) they may undergo compulsory quarantine at a general designated quarantine hotel or a designated quarantine facility.
The Government announced that from 5 February 2022, the compulsory quarantine period for inbound travellers from overseas places will be adjusted to 14days in designated quarantine hotels, to be followed by a seven-day self-monitoring period.
According to Clause 3 of the Standard Employment Contract (SEC), FDHs working in Hong Kong must work and reside in the employer's residence specified in the SEC during their employment period. In view of the latest quarantine arrangement considerations, the Commissioner for Labour has, in accordance with Clause 15 of the SEC, given in-principle consent for FDHs who have completed a 14-day compulsory quarantine to stay at licensed hotels or guesthouses which are not DQHs/DQFs to complete the subsequent self-monitoring if requests have made by the employers due to considerations of the family situation or household environment. The quarantine arrangement is not necessary to make an application to the LD.
