COVID-19 Update

Travelling to HK

Updated date:  3rd January 2023

The Government announced that starting from December 29, 2022, the new arrangements for travellers entering into Hong Kong will be effective.

The Standardised Requirements

  1.  For inbound travellers, regardless of being from Mainland China, Macao, Taiwan or overseas places, the requirements are the same.

  2. Before your departure to Hong Kong, you need to conduct a rapid antigen test (RAT) within 24 hours, or undergo a polymerase chain reaction-based nucleic acid test within 48 hours, prior to the scheduled time of flight departure (for those entering via Hong Kong airport) or the scheduled time of arrival at Hong Kong (for those entering via other boundary control points), and obtain a NEGATIVE result for entering Hong Kong. Upon receiving the test results, you should keep the photos showing the test results or the test report for 90 days for presentation for checking on request by Government personnel.

  3. Upon arrival at Hong Kong, you can enter the city freely without PCR test.

  4. The Government continues to advise all inbound travellers to conduct daily RATs using self-arranged RAT kits during the period between the day of your arrival (i.e. Day 0 and Day 5) after arrival at Hong Kong.

The Handling Arrangements for Persons Tested Positive will be Aligned with that for Local Cases
