The Government today announced that it has enhanced its rapid nucleic acid testing capacity and will launch an online booking arrangement within next week for the special nucleic acid testing service at Shenzhen Bay Port.   This will facilitate travellers’ trip planning and allow them to depart through Shenzhen Bay Control Point in an orderly manner, the Government said in a press release.   Under the upcoming booking arrangement, travellers must first obtain a quota at a Shenzhen quarantine hotel and then reserve a timeslot for the special nucleic acid test on the day of departure through an online booking system. They should arrive at the Shenzhen Bay Control Point for the special nucleic acid test as scheduled. Those without bookings will not be allowed to enter the control point for nucleic acid testing and immigration clearance.   The arrangement will help further shorten the processing time of the special nucleic acid test, reduce the waiting time and refine the crowd management at Shenzhen Bay Control Point, the Government said.   To avoid overcrowding, the Government urged travellers not to use the Shenzhen Bay Port during peak hours from 9am to noon. It will also announce the daily peak hours and expected waiting time at the port for travellers’ reference.   Before implementing online booking, the Government will consider adopting crowd control measures as appropriate if there is overcrowding, it added.
