Hong Kong easter holiday period
Hong Kong’s immigration
department has made necessary arrangements to ensure smooth passenger traffic flow during the impending Easter holiday period from April 17 to April 21. The arrangements were made to deal with anticipated heavy traffic during the festive season.

The department anticipates passage of about 4.95 million passengers across Hong Kong's sea, land and air control points during Easter festive period, which is an increase of 9.7% over the same period last year. Among them, around 74 % or about 3.65 million passengers are expected to pass through control points of land frontiers.

With the departure of around 476 000 passengers, the number of outgoing passengers using the control points of land frontiers is expected to get to peak on 18 April 2014. Whereas the number of incoming passengers is expected to get peak on 20 April 2014, as around
433000 passengers are arriving Hong Kong.

Lo Wu would be the most occupied control point with an expectation of 1.61 million passengers. The average number of passengers estimated to be travelling through this point of control through the festival period on daily basis is around 322 000. Heavy traffic is anticipated even at Shenzhen Bay, Lok Ma Chau Spur Line and Lok Ma Chaub control points with an average estimation of around 108000, 175000 and 89000 passengers respectively, on daily basis.
To deal with this anticipated heavy traffic, the Immigration Department has deployed extra staff to strengthen control points, lessened leave for front-line officers, will operate additional clearance counters and kiosks in addition to deploying additional security guards. Additionally, a joint command centre will be set up by the Police, MTR Corporation, the Customs and Excise Department, and the Immigration Department to make required arrangements at Lo Wu Control Point. Further, the conditions of the passengers would be monitored closely and suitable diversion plans to the traffic would be adopted upon requirement.

All Cross-boundary passengers are advised to prepare themselves in advance, refrain from making their travel at the busy periods, and to follow TV and radio broadcasts for information on traffic conditions at several control points. These measures will help passengers avoid overcrowding and longer waiting periods for clearance at the immigration check points.
