Hong Kong may ease entry for vaccinated persons

This does not apply to vaccinated persons from extremely or very high-risk places.

The Hong Kong government is planning to ease quarantine requirements for persons who have received COVID-19 vaccine, except for those who have stayed in areas identified as extremely or very high-risk.

The quarantine period for fully vaccinated persons will be reduced to seven days from arrival.

Non-Hong Kong residents who have completed their COVID-19 jabs will be subjected to relaxed restrictions, provided they have not visited extremely and very high-risk areas.

Non-Hong Kong residents are currently only allowed entry to Hong Kong if they stayed in low-risk areas, such as New Zealand and Australia, the Mainland or Macao.

At present, areas identified as extremely high-risk are Brazil, India, Nepal, Pakistan, the Philippines and South Africa; whilst very high-risk areas are Ireland and Indonesia.

“The local epidemic situation has become stable, and the vaccination rate is increasing steadily,” a government spokesman said.

“Hong Kong has been maintaining strict border control measures against importation of cases to control the epidemic situation. Meanwhile, as Hong Kong is an international metropolis, many of our citizens have genuine needs to travel around the world,” the spokesman added.

The government said that allowing the flow to and from Hong Kong also answers the city’s economic needs.
