- The authorities of Hong Kong will introduce new COVID-19 quarantine requirements on September 26, 2022
The authorities of Hong Kong announced that the jurisdiction would lift the requirement to undergo a hotel quarantine upon arrival, effective September 26, 2022. Eligible foreign national travelers have the option to undergo an at-home medical surveillance period for three days or a hotel of their choice after a negative PCR test result has been produced upon arrival.
Travelers who receive a negative test result will be given an amber code in the LeaveHomeSafe mobile app. This will mean restricted entry into specific locations but allow the traveler to go out during the at-home medical surveillance period.
Once the medical surveillance period is complete, travelers will continue to be required to self-monitor for an additional four days.
Travelers will need to undergo rapid antigen testing daily and PCR testing once every two days throughout the at-home medical surveillance and the additional four-day self-monitoring period.
What are the Changes?
The authorities of Hong Kong will introduce new COVID-19 quarantine measures on September 26, 2022, and remove the requirement to undergo a hotel facility-based quarantine. Previously, all eligible travelers were required to undergo the quarantine period in a government-approved hotel facility.
