Two more hotels have been named as designated quarantine facilities (DQFs) for  incoming foreign domestic helpers (FDHs)  who were not vaccinated in Hong Kong, the Labour Department (LD) announced today.


O'Hotel ( and iclub Ma Tau Wai Hotel ( will start accepting bookings through their websites from February 6 and March 1, at daily rates of $650 and $750, which include three meals a day.


Their 491 rooms will bring to 2,779 the number of rooms available for FDH quarantine. The other hotels that accept new FDHs are Courtyard by Marriott Hong Kong in Shatin, Regala SkyCity Hotel in Tung Chung, and Rambler Garden Hotel in Tsing Yi. 

Only FDHs who have confirmed bookings in a DQF will be allowed to board a flight for Hong Kong and enter Hong Kong upon arrival, it added.

Under the rules, payment will be refunded to the person who made the booking if an FDH tested positive for COVID-19 before arrival in Hong Kong, if the flight is cancelled by the airline, or a lockdown is ordered in the place of origin, provided that supporting documents are submitted in advance.

The Department also said more hotels may be designated as quarantine facilities for FDHs, depending on the need.

"The Government understands the need of local families for FDHs. However, the local epidemic situation is evolving rapidly, and the Government must vigilantly uphold the policy of guarding against importation of cases," said the announcement.

"The Government will consider whether more DQFs can be provided having regard to the global and local epidemic situation. The hotels will adjust the number of rooms open for reservation each day having regard to the overall booking situation."

The dedicated FDH Portal ( set up by the LD provides information and useful links relating to the quarantine arrangements of FDHs. For enquiries, please contact the LD through its 24-hour hotline at 2717 1771 (manned by 1823) or by email to


The news, however, is of little use for FDHs from the Philippines which was included among eight countries from where passenger flights have been banned. The flight ban was initially set for Jan 8 to 21, but has since been extended twice. 

Today, in a press conference, Lam again extended the flight ban another two weeks, to Feb. 18.

Also still banned are passenger flights from Australia, Canada, France, India, Pakistan, Britain, and the United States.
