Hong Kong will Shorten Quarantine for Vaccinated Visitors

Hong Kong to Shorten Quarantine

 for Vaccinated Visitors


Hong Kong will shorten the quarantine period from 12th May for inbound visitors who have been vaccinated.

Travelers will be arranged based on their departures as public health authorities have divided overseas areas into five categories on the basis of the severity of pandemic.

People from low-risk areas including Australia and Singapore will have their mandatory quarantine shorted from two weeks to one plus self-monitoring for seven days, Thomas Chan, the permanent secretary for food and health (health), mentioned.

Chan said those granted the shorter quarantine should take the second shot of the COVID-19 vaccine two weeks before their arrival.

The current 21-day quarantine period for those from medium-to-high-risk places will be reduced to two weeks plus seven days of self-monitoring. But the policies for visitors from places of extremely and very high risks remained unchanged.

Inbound visitors from the mainland, Macao or Taiwan, except those under the "Return2hk" travel scheme, will undergo seven-day quarantine plus self-monitoring for seven days.
