What you need to know about HK’s vaccine record rule

The new requirements will be in effect starting 20 August.

The Hong Kong government will be imposing varying requirements on vaccination records for persons arriving in Hong Kong, starting 20 August.

Hong Kong residents who have stayed in high-risk places will be required to hold a recognised vaccination record upon boarding. They will also need to undergo quarantine for 21 days.

For persons arriving in Hong Kong who have stayed in medium-risk places, Taiwan, or low-risk areas will be allowed entry if they hold vaccination records, issued by the relevant authorities or relevant institutions where the vaccines were administered.

The government noted the recognised vaccination records include those issued by Hong Kong, an authority or recognised institution of a country where its national regulatory authority is designated by the World Health Organization as a stringent regulatory authority.

Those issued by Mainland or Macao authorities, or an institution recognised by Mainland or Macao authorities, or an authority or recognised institution of a country with bilateral vaccination record recognition agreement with Hong Kong are also valid.

The government added it will continue to closely monitor the epidemic situation of different places and will consider a basket of factors under the risk-based principle to adjust the boarding, quarantine, and testing requirements for persons arriving at Hong Kong from relevant places based on risk levels as the situation warrants.
