Since all social distancing measures will be lifted with effect from 29 December 2022, film crews are no longer required to get a “No-objection letter” from the Film Services Office before conducting filming in public places. However, film crews are encouraged to give prior notice to the Police of any plan to conduct filming in public areas by submitting a completed notification form to the Police Public Relations Wing (PRW).
In addition, filming crews are encouraged to continue to undertake the following precautionary measures:
(1) Before entering the filming location, all crew members must have had their body temperature checked and hands sanitised with alcohol;
(2) Any crew member has a body temperature higher than 37.5 degree Celsius must immediately stop working and go to a doctor;
(3) Except for the actors being filmed, all other crew members must wear surgical masks and work badges at all times;
(4) Actors must also wear surgical masks when not being filmed; and
(5) Exercise crowd control (e.g. to request the crew members that are not involved in the scene and other members of the public to keep a distance from the filming location) when necessary.
