ETS Security Overview – Hong Kong
The political situation in Hong Kong is normally considered to be safe and stable until June 2019 where widespread protests broke out. This was due to the Hong Kong Extradition bill allowing for persons to be extradited from Hong Kong to China, Taiwan, and Macau. This bill was primarily put in place to extradite fugitives from Hong Kong however locals of Hong Kong protested due to the possibility of applying the bill to extradite persons who may be political activists, journalists, and not fugitives.
Despite the government withdrawing the proposed bill protests continue due to feeling on the ground that withdrawing the bill is not enough. This has led to numerous mass protests where police and protestors have had both peaceful protests but also violent confrontations with one another. This has led to security forces deploying riot police, the use of tear gas, rubber bullets, water cannons, and on some occasion’s live rounds.
Because of the ongoing nature of the protests the city is subject to disruption should planned protests escalate into other areas of Hong Kong. This has led to disruptions in public transport, whether that be rail services or buses but also vehicle traffic. It is commonplace for impromptu barricades to be set up on roads which then requires alternate safe routes to utilized at a moment’s notice.
Terrorism Hong Kong is generally low but there have been instances of attempted Improvised Explosive Device attacks that were neutralized by the police before the devices were activated. This is an ongoing threat that travelers should be aware of.
Crime in Hong Kong is considered to have a low level of street crime however pickpocketing and bag snatching do happen, specifically in crowded areas so it is always important to be aware of your surroundings. Additionally, there have been instances of robbery in some of Hong Kong parks which have led to the police increasing their patrols to mitigate this issue.
Natural disasters can also be an issue, the main issue being typhoons where Hong Kong has been flooded and at the time the city has had to shut down. The typhoon season normally starts around April through to October.
