HK tightens arrival rules for travellers from Bhutan
The rules will be implemented on 19 January.
Hong Kong will tighten arrival rules for travellers from Bhutan starting 19 January.
In an advisory, Hong Kong said Bhutan will be categorised as a Group A specified place or country at high risk following the detection of Omicron cases in South Asian countries.
Non-residents who stayed in Bhutan within 21 days will be barred entry to Hong Kong, whilst residents will only be allowed to board a flight back to the city if they have been fully vaccinated and hold a recognised vaccination record.
Residents coming from Bhutan will undergo quarantine at a designated hotel for 21 days upon arrival in Hong Kong and will take six tests during the said period.
On their 26th day of arrival in Hong Kong, residents need to take another test in a community centre.
