Hong Kong

Since summer 1997 Hong Kong belongs to the People's Republic of China. However, regulations in Hong Kong are different from those effective in all other parts of China.


Methadone/Buprenorphine Treatment: available

There are some 22 substitution treatment centers in Hong Kong all of which accept foreign patients for temporary treatment. Though not necessarily required, we advise the patient's home prescriber to contact a clinic in Hong Kong before the patient's journey. On arrival at a clinic patients should carry with them a letter from their doctor stating their previous history on drug addiction as well as the present dosage on maintenance. The treatment centers would not normally issue methadone/buprenorphine to tourists leaving the territory. As the effects of methadone/buprenorphine last for at least 24 hours, for most of the cases, it is only necessary to adjust the timing of the last dose administered before departure. A listing of all treatment centers is available from the Narcotics Division.

Importation of Methadone/Buprenorphine: possible

The importation of small quantities of methadone/buprenorphine by tourists for their own use during a short stay will be accepted. However, they are required to justify the quantities they carry by producing documentary proof such as medical certificates and the period of stay. The exportation of small quantities of methadone/buprenorphine is also allowed for tourists for their own use during the period of travel. The quantities of methadone/buprenorphine should be justified and accompanied with medical certificates.
