Hong Kong raises Indonesia’s COVID-19 risk level

Indonesia will be identified as a “very high-risk” area, starting 21 June.

The Hong Kong government will be imposing stricter measures on travellers who have stayed in Indonesia following reports of rising cases of COVID-19 with mutant strains in the area.

Starting 21 June, Indonesia will be identified as amongst the areas under Group A2 specified places (very high-risk), along with Ireland. It was previously under the Group B specified places (high-risk).

 "The Government will continue to closely monitor the epidemic situation of various places, the prevalence of new virus variants, vaccination progress, and changes in the volume of cross-boundary passenger traffic, and will adjust the boarding and compulsory quarantine requirements for persons arriving at Hong Kong from relevant places as the situation warrants," a government spokesman said.

The A2 classification will subject travellers who have stayed in Indonesia within 21 days before their flight to present upon boarding a negative test result, taken within 72 hours.

They will also be tested upon arriving at the airport and will be required to undergo a 21-day quarantine at a designated hotel.  

This followed Hong Kong’s move to also identify Colombia and Korea amongst the high-risk places, starting 18 June.
