Free Covid-19 tests for FDHs to continue this month

02 June 2021

By The SUN


FDHs will continue to be offered the tests for free, right where they hang out on Sundays

The Hong Kong Labour Department says it will continue providing free Covid-19 tests to foreign domestic helpers at its mobile testing stations to be set up at their favorite haunts through all Sundays in June, and during the Tuen Ng Festival holiday on Jun 14.

No appointment is needed, and the testing will be on a voluntary basis. Last month, two rounds of compulsory testing of all FDHs were held, with the warning that anyone who did not comply with the order would be ordered to pay a fixed penalty of $5,000. 

Call now!

At the same time, the Department said in a statement released earlier today, Jun 2, that FDHs should get vaccinated as soon as possible to protect themselves and the people around them.

All fully vaccinated people, meaning those who had two doses of a coronavirus vaccine 14 days prior, are exempted from any compulsory testing order like the two notices issued to FDHs earlier. 

The four mobile specimen collection stations will be set up at:  


                               ·       Chater Garden in Central (near Exit J2 of MTR Central Station) \

·       Hing Fat Street entrance of Victoria Park in Causeway Bay (near Exit A2 of MTR Tin Hau Station)

·       Lai Chi Kok Park entrance (near Exit D of MTR Mei Foo Station) and

·       Tai Ho Road entrance of Tsuen Wan Park (near Exit D of MTR Tsuen Wan West Station).  

The mobile testing stations are open exclusively to FDHs on all Sundays in June (June 6, 13, 20 and 27) and at the Tuen Ng Festival (June 14), from 10am to 5pm.


An FDH should bring along his/her Hong Kong identity card or passport, and register his/her personal information on the spot at the government website ( in order to receive an SMS notification of the test result.

Duty officers will be at the site to assist any FDH who might need help with the registration.  

A combined nasal and throat swab will be administered to FDHs receiving the test, and the specimens will be taken to a laboratory for testing. 

A negative test result will be sent via SMS to the participant while positive cases will be referred for the Centre for Health Protection for follow-up and treatment.

Enquiries may be coursed through the dedicated FDH hotline at 2157 9537 (manned by 1823) or by email to
