In a statement issued today, Mar 9, the LD said the mobile stations will be set up on Chater Road in Central, Hing Fat Street entrance of Victoria Park in Causeway Bay (near exit  A2 of Tin Hau MTR station) and Lai Chi Kok Park entrance (exit D of Mei Foo Station).

The statement said the free testing is offered free to all FDHs for their benefit, and to reduce the risk of virus transmission within the community.

Another specimen collection station will be set up on the Hing Fat street entrance of Victoria Park

The last free testing offered to FDH lasted from Aug 2020 to Feb 2021, and was offered to FDHs whose employment contracts had expired or were terminated, and who were waiting to join their new employers.

“We strongly encourage FDHs to participate in the free testing to safeguard their health. We also appeal to employment agencies and employers to encourage and arrange for FDHs to receive the free testing service at designated mobile specimen collection stations. No prior appointment is required."


The specimen collection will be conducted from 10am to 5pm on the two Sundays indicated, and will be on a first come, first served basis.

FDHs must bring along their HKID card or passport, and register his/her personal information on the spot at the government website ( Please select "Non-Government Staff - Foreign domestic helpers") in order to receive an SMS notification of the test result.


FDHs will be given the barcode number of the specimen bottle they collect after registration for reference. If necessary, duty officers can assist the FDH in registration.  

Specimen collection will be through a combined nasal and throat swab, and all specimens will be forwarded to a laboratory for testing.


If the result is negative, the participant will receive a notification via SMS. Positive cases will be referred to the Centre for Health Protection of the Department of Health (DH), which will contact the participant directly.
