Latest update: Safety and security section – updated information on demonstrations

Hong Kong is generally a stable society underpinned by the rule of law. While demonstrations are usually conducted in a peaceful and orderly manner, some have been more volatile in nature, resulting in confrontations between police and protesters. On 6 November a large protest related to the recent Legislative Council elections took place in Sheung Wan, which resulted in clashes between police and protesters into the early hours of the morning of 7 November. There is an increased risk of further protests and public gatherings later this week. You should monitor and follow the instructions of local authorities, avoid areas where protests and unplanned public gatherings are taking place if possible, follow the instructions of the local authorities and take sensible precautions against petty crime if you are nearby.
