Hong Kong Travel Advisory

COVID-19 Information

Last updated:  Sept 27th, 2022

You no longer need to quarantine in a designated hotel on arrival in Hong Kong, but you’ll be subject to three days of medical surveillance, followed by four days of self-monitoring. During medical surveillance, you’ll be restricted from entering certain premises under the Vaccine Pass scheme, including restaurants and bars. Non-Hong Kong residents aged 12 or above must be fully vaccinated or have obtained a medical exemption certificate to enter Hong Kong. You’ll need to complete the online health declaration and have evidence of a negative COVID-19 (RAT) test issued within 24 hours of boarding your flight. You’ll need to take a COVID-19 (RAT) as well as (PCR) test on arrival. You’ll also need to take multiple COVID-19 tests during the medical surveillance and self-monitoring period.

For inbound travelers from Mainland China and Macao, the Return2hk Scheme and Come2hk Scheme will be extended to cover all places in the Mainland and Macao with no quota restriction. Advanced application and nucleic acid test before arrival at Hong Kong are also not required. However, they will still need to undergo nucleic acid test on Day 2 and be subject to self-monitoring in the three days after arrival at Hong Kong.

Passengers transferring or transiting in Hong Kong (without passing through immigration control) are not required to present proof of a pre-departure nucleic acid test and follow the quarantine measures stated above. Visit the website of the Hong Kong International Airport for more details.
