HK tightens rules for travellers from Mauritius and Sierra Leone
Non-residents who stayed in these counties within 21 days will be barred entry.
Hong Kong has tightened rules for travellers coming from Mauritius and Sierra Leone following the detection of Omicron cases in the two African countries.
Starting 15 December, the two counties will be considered a Group A specified place or countries at high risk.
Non-residents who have stayed in the two countries within 21 days will not be allowed entry to the city.
On the other hand, Hong Kong residents who have stayed in the two counties within the same period will be allowed to board a flight back home, but only if they “have been fully vaccinated and hold a recognised COVID-19 jab record.”
Upon arrival in HK, residents will undergo a 21-day compulsory quarantine in a designated quarantine hotel and will be tested six times during the period.
