The Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) said on Monday guests attending a financial summit in Hong Kong early next month will be able to have meals with others in private rooms during their stay.
The 200 representatives from leading global financial institutions will be here for three days from November 1.
The HKMA's chief executive, Eddie Yue, said the arrangement is part of "reasonable facilitation" for guests, who will also be subject to Covid tests before and during the trip.
"For example, during the first three days of medical surveillance they will be able to have meals with others in private rooms and visit certain venues that require active checking [of the vaccine pass]," he wrote on his blog, without specifying which venues.
Yue said if a guest tested positive, he or she can choose to leave Hong Kong by chartered flight or undergo isolation in the territory.
The HKMA chief stressed these arrangements were made to allow the guests to achieve as much as they can during their stay.
Under current inbound travel rules, arrivals are subject to three days of medical surveillance, and they are given an amber code which bars them from entering venues like restaurants.
