Travelling to Hong Kong? Make sure you have been vaccinated twice

The new rule also applies to Hong Kong residents.

Travellers entering Hong Kong will now have to be vaccinated twice to be issued a provisional vaccine pass.

According to the government, the new rule applies to all inbound travellers, including Hong Kong residents and those coming from the Mainland.

The government, however, said there are exceptions to the rule, including people who are unfit for vaccination due to health reasons. Those unfit for vaccination must present relevant proof issued by a medical practitioner, said the government. 

“The medical certificate must indicate in Chinese or English the health reasons for the individual being unfit for vaccination,” the government added.

Another exception to the rule are children aged 11 or below.

The government said travellers who intend to stay in the city for a longer period can receive the required dosage of the vaccine in the city as soon as possible upon their arrival in Hong Kong.

Meanwhile, those subject to compulsory quarantine and eligible for obtaining the provisional vaccine pass will be issued with a “compulsory quarantine order together with the pass for local use at boundary control points upon arrival in Hong Kong,” the government said.

“People arriving from the Mainland or Macau and are not subject to compulsory quarantine, including those who enter Hong Kong through the Return2hk or Come2hk schemes, may declare their arrival record at the 18 designated post offices for obtaining the provisional vaccine pass,” the government added.
