Minivan from Shenzhen Bay port
Hi. When I lived in SZ before pandemic, one of the options was minivan to HKIA at CNY150. However, I don’t see the option in the list. When I came to SZ in April this year, I took a minivan from Huanggang port. That option is not listed either. Is there a minivan service from SZ Bay port?

Answers (1)
Answered by Fiona | Jun. 12, 2023 00:48

Cars with regular Shenzhen car licenses are not allowed to enter Hong Kong.

You are advised to book a SKY Limo or HK airport drop-off service. The agencies will arrange the car based on the amount of your group members.
