COVID-19 Information for Travelers to Hong Kong from the US

Updates for Inbound Travellers

Hong Kong residents who are not fully vaccinated are allowed to return to Hong Kong. For non-Hong Kong residents aged 12 or above, only those who are fully vaccinated or hold a COVID-19 vaccination medical exemption certificate can enter Hong Kong.

Prior to boarding a flight to Hong Kong, travelers are required to conduct a rapid antigen test (RAT), which can be self-administered or by professional swab sampling, and taken within 24 hours of the scheduled time of departure. After obtaining the negative RAT result, they would need to complete the online Health Declaration Form. A green Health Declaration QR code will be generated after the submission of the declaration and upon confirmation of boarding requirements. The QR code should be saved as a screen shot or a printout and presented when checking in prior to flight boarding and to the border control point staff upon arrival in Hong Kong.

Under the latest arrangement, arriving passengers are now required to undergo nucleic acid tests on the day of arrival (Day 0) at the Hong Kong International Airport and on Day 2 after arrival in the city, as well as daily rapid antigen tests (RATs) until Day 7 after arrival in Hong Kong.
