The public is encouraged to avoid all non-essential travel outside the city. All Hong Kong residents returning to town must adhere to relevant boarding, quarantine, and testing arrangements.
Requirements for inbound travellers will be adjusted based on the epidemic situation of the place they are coming from. These places will be categorised into high-risk, medium-risk, and low-risk groups. Visit this link to see the complete list of requirements. Since August 20, Hong Kong tightened quarantine arrangements for inbound travellers from countries including Bangladesh, Cambodia, France, Greece, Iran, Malaysia, the Netherlands, Spain, Sri Lanka, Switzerland, Tanzania, Thailand, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, the US, and Australia.
After several postponement, Hong Kong and Singapore ceased plans for travel bubble. Both cities have decided not to pursue further discussions due to differences in the anti-epidemic strategies. But Hongkongers are allowed to travel to Singapore without the need for quarantine, regardless of their vaccination status, since Hong Kong falls under ‘very low risk countries and regions’.
