Hong Kong expands COVID high-risk list

Cambodia, Thailand and Vietnam will be identified as high-risk areas, starting 4 June.

Travellers from Cambodia, Thailand and Vietnam will have to undergo stricter quarantine measures after the Hong Kong government announced the three countries will be identified as high-risk places starting 4 June.

The government made the move to prevent the importation of mutant variants of COVID-19.

At present, high-risk territories include Argentina, Bangladesh, Belgium, Canada, Ecuador, Ethiopia, France, Germany, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Malaysia, the Netherlands, Romania, Russia, Singapore, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine, the United Arab Emirates, and the US.

Moreover, Hong Kong will also lower the UK, which is currently identified as a “very high-risk” place, in its risk list.

Starting 4 June, it will be classified as a “high-risk” area after Hong Kong saw no imported cases from the UK.

Travellers who stayed in high-risk areas within 14 days before boarding will be required to present a negative COVID-19 test result taken 72 hours prior to the scheduled flight. They must also present a confirmation of their room reservation.

Those who have been fully vaccinated will need to undergo 14 days of quarantine; whilst those who have not fully received their vaccines will be subject to a 21-day quarantine.
