Entry requirement to Hong Kong from the US

Updates for Inbound Travellers

Starting Sep 26, Hong Kong residents who are not fully vaccinated are allowed to return to Hong Kong. For non-Hong Kong residents aged 12 or above, only those who are fully vaccinated or hold a COVID-19 vaccination medical exemption certificate can enter Hong Kong.

Prior to boarding a flight to Hong Kong, travelers are required to provide a negative result of a rapid antigen test (RAT) taken within 24 hours of departure, instead of a PCR-based nucleic acid test conducted within 48 hours.

Under the latest arrangement, upon completion of a PRC-based nucleic test, arriving passengers can leave the airport to undergo a 3-day medical surveillance at home or in other self-arranged accommodation.

During the self-monitoring period from Day 3 to Day 7, the travelers would need to undergo the prerequisite PCR and RAT tests.
