Entry requirement to Hong Kong from the US

Updates for Inbound Travellers Updates for Inbound Travellers

From May 1, 2022, fully-vaccinated non-Hong Kong residents will be allowed to enter Hong Kong from overseas. They will be subject to the same boarding, quarantine and testing rules as fully-vaccinated Hong Kong residents. They must hold a negative result of a polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based nucleic acid test for COVID-19 taken within 48 hours before their flight departure time and a confirmation of a room reservation at designated quarantine hotel (DQH) for at least 7 nights.

Beginning June 1, travelers no longer have to show documentary proof of the laboratory's accreditation. Pre-departure PCR-based nucleic acid tests will not be required for inbound children under the age of three. However the young children will still be subject to PCR-based nucleic acid tests, as per existing arrangement, upon arrival in Hong Kong. Transit passengers will not be required to present proof of a pre-flight PCR nucleic test.

Separately, also from June 1, passengers who have previously contracted the virus 14 to 90 days prior to boarding for Hong Kong and have recovered can be allowed to board a flight if they provide documentary proofs showing that they contracted the virus 14 to 90 days prior to boarding for Hong Kong and have recovered and the negative result of a rapid antigen test conducted within 24 hours prior to boarding.

Upon arrival at Hong Kong International Airport, travelers are required to receive both a PCR-based nucleic acid test and a rapid antigen test (RAT). Arrivals with negative RAT results will be transferred by designated transport to DQHs to wait for their PCR nucleic acid test results. Upon testing negative on the PCR-based nucleic acid test, they will then be issued with a 14-day quarantine order and be subject to testing requirements. If the results on the day 5 PCR test and days 6 and 7 RATs are all negative, they may opt for an early discharge from the DQH, then undergo a 7-day self-monitoring.
