The Labour Department will give foreign domestic helpers and the families who employ them a total of 12,000 free tickets to Ocean Park Hong Kong until May 28, as part of its Thankful Week celebrations. The department will give 3,000 households four tickets each – two for the helper and two for the family – to support the city’s Happy Hong Kong campaign that aims to provide SAR residents new recreational experiences this year.

How to win the tickets

Foreign domestic workers and their employers who want to win the tickets should:

  1. Record a video together: The video must be 20-30 seconds long, in English or Chinese (Cantonese or Mandarin), and visibly feature the helper and their employers together expressing their appreciation for each other.
  2. Share the video online: Participants must then upload the video to the internet via cloud storage, video-sharing platforms, or social media by May 28. The video can be privately shared online, but should be viewable by the Labour Department until June 15.
  3. Submit the video clip and personal details: Send the Labour Department the link to the video clip and information such as the helper’s and employer’s name and email address in an online form.
  4. Await campaign results: All participants will get an automated confirmation email with a reference number, and the first 3,000 eligible entries will win the tickets. The winners will be notified via email and will receive QR codes for e-tickets to Ocean Park before July 9. If there are more than 3,000 participating households, the winners will be decided by drawing lots, the results of which will be announced on the Thankful Week webpage on June 16.
