Hong Kong Companies Registry to provide limited counter services from 23 March
To align with the announcement by the Government on 21 March to provide essential, emergency and limited public services only starting from 23 March in order to reduce the risk of a large-scale outbreak of COVID-19 in the community, the Companies Registry will provide limited counter services every working day starting from 23 March for receiving documents delivered in hard copy and collection of certificates for company incorporation.
To achieve social distancing with a view to reducing the risk of the spread of the COVID-19 virus in the community, the Registry urges all customers to continue to deliver documents electronically or by post. Customers should avoid visiting the Registry’s office premises unless they require urgent service. The Registry’s services on registration of documents and public search services will continue to be provided electronically.
As the services of the Registry will be scaled down from 23 March, the Registry requires longer processing time for documents submitted in hard copy form.
Depending on the ability to handle our customers requests electronically, some of the ordered documents may take longer to process.
We apologise for the inconvenience caused.
