The government said on Thursday that Hollywood star Nicole Kidman had not breached any of the conditions that came with her quarantine-free arrival in Hong Kong, including minimising any contact with the public.

The actor was allowed to skip quarantine after reportedly arriving in the SAR on a private jet last week to film a TV series.

In a statement, the Commerce and Economic Development Bureau said the exemption was granted in accordance with the law “for the purpose of performing designated professional work, taking into account that it is conducive to maintaining the necessary operation and development of Hong Kong's economy.”

Questions were raised over infection risks after the actor was spotted shopping in Central.

A government spokesman said Kidman was required to comply with a set of conditions to minimise any transmission risk and contact with the public, including getting vaccinated before she came, staying at a designated place here, undergoing at least three Covid tests during the first 14 days after her arrival, submitting her work-related itineraries and arranging point-to-point transport.

The bureau said it had carried out checks to ensure compliance.

“No breach of the exemption conditions by the personnel concerned has been identified so far,” it said.
