Arrival and Transportation

Before Arrival

Participants are advised to buy relevant medical and travel insurance to cover the period of your stay.

Getting to Hong Kong

If you are arriving by air, you will fly to the Hong Kong International Airport (HKG), which is just around 30 minutes from downtown by the MTR. For more information about public transportation to and from the Hong Kong International Airport, please click here.

Travellers from Shenzhen in Mainland China via the Lo Wu and Lok Ma Chau checkpoints can take the MTR into town after passing through Hong Kong Immigration.

Due to variations in legislation of different countries, some items considered legal at other points of embarkation or disembarkation can be considered illegal in Hong Kong. Check for the types of items that are prohibited/controlled into or out of Hong Kong at Hong Kong Police Force and Hong Kong Customs and Excise Department.

Getting to The Chinese University of Hong Kong

The EMedIC Global 2020 will be held at The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK). CUHK is conveniently located at the University Station on the MTR East Rail Line.



If you are travelling from the Hong Kong International Airport, you can take the airport bus A41. The journey is about an hour and costs HK$ 22.3. Take off the bus at Shatin Central Bus Terminal and walk to the Shatin MTR station, which is two stops away from the University MTR Station. You may also take a taxi from the airport to CUHK, the journey takes about 45 minutes and costs around HK$ 320 by red taxi.

Getting to the Student Accommodation Location


Due to the current developments of COVID-19 and the unpredictable situation, we inform you that we will postpone EMedIC Global 2020 to take place at a later date in 2020 or summer 2021. We deeply regret that CUHK BME had to make this decision. During the past few months, we have been working relentlessly on the organisation of EMedIC Global, all of you have been preparing for the competition. For CUHK BME and for us, the health and safety of all the participants, employees, visitors and volunteers is the top priority. Generally, the event will take place in a similar setting. We will keep you posted on the updates.
