The daily quota is 50 private cars. The quotas will be allocated by ballot system in the first stage.

If you wish to participate in the scheme, please submit an application for the "Driving on Lantau Island" Scheme of the Lantau Closed Road Permit (LCRP) through the online service provided by the Transport Department. The fee for an LCRP is HK$75.
Applicant is advised to check the application carefully before submission. Once application is being submitted, any changes of the application particulars, including the email address, the date of entering South Lantau, vehicle registration mark, permit collection method, etc., will not be entertained.
Applicant who chooses to receive the e-permit is required to print and display the e-permit according to the related requirements. Applicant shall use a new and white A4 paper and a laser printer or a printer with high resolution to print the permit. It is required to set the printer to print A4 size paper, scaling at 100% and page layout with one page per sheet; and print in black and white colour.
According to the Road Traffic (Registration and Licensing of Vehicles) Regulations (Cap. 374E) (“the Regulations”), a proper printout of an e-permit means a clearly legible printout of the e-permit that conforms to the specifications specified by the Commissioner of Transport in the conditions of the permit. If the permit holder fails to print the e-permit according to the requirements stipulated in the Regulations, the printout of the e-permit may not be regarded as a valid permit. Conducting activities authorized by the permit without a valid permit is an offence.
