December 1 update: Due to the recent rise of COVID-19 cases in Hong Kong, both Hong Kong and Singapore governments have decided to postpone the launch of the Air Travel Bubble to 2021.
News of the world's first two-way leisure travel bubble excited both cities when it was announced last October. The launch was scheduled to commence on November 22, 2020, until December 31, 2020, but was deferred due to the rising cases of coronavirus in Hong Kong.
The bilateral agreement will allow air travel, without quarantine upon arrival nor restrictions to travel purposes or itineraries, between both cities. However, travellers must first test negative in up to three Covid-19 PCR (polymerase chain reaction) tests at various stages of the journey, and can only fly on designated flights.
While we wait for the final launch date, here's everything you need to know, including what you can and cannot do when the air travel bubble takes off.
