Fully vaccinated international visitors are now able to enter Hong Kong with the new rules that took effect on 1st May 2022.
Fully vaccinated travellers will be able to enter the administrative region under the same rules as Hong Kong residents. The rules include taking a pre-departure test, a ‘test and hold’ procedure on arrival at Hong Kong International Airport and a seven-day period of hotel quarantine.
The ‘test and hold’ arrangement is set to be improved from the beginning of May allowing arrivals to take rapid antigen tests rather than PCR tests. The Hong Kong government said this would “shorten the waiting time of inbound passengers at the airport to reduce crowd gathering, while maintaining stringent control of importation risks”.
In April, Hong Kong lifted its ban on incoming passenger flights from nine countries which included the UK.
