πŸ›‘οΈ Travel safety

Exercise a high degree of caution
Fully vaccinated travellers can enter Hong Kong. You must present your COVID-19 vaccination record. You must also have evidence of a valid negative COVID-19 (nucleic acid) test issued within 48 hours of boarding your flight. You'll need to take a COVID-19 (RAT) as well as (PCR) test on arrival. You'll also need to take multiple COVID-19 tests during quarantine and at a community testing clinic on day 12. Dual citizenship is no longer recognised in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region following the application of the Nationality Law of the People’s Republic of China (see β€˜Local laws’). As previously advised, Hong Kong's National Security Law could be interpreted broadly and you could break the law without intending to. If you’re concerned about the new law, reconsider your need to remain in Hong Kong (see 'Local laws'). We advise: Exercise a high degree of caution in Hong Kong due to the impacts of COVID-19.
