Hong Kong has loosened entry restriction for travelers, effective Sept. 26.

Visitors from overseas no longer have to quarantine for three days at a designated hotel, but their movement is limited for the first three days in Hong Kong. Visitors can take public transportation but they are banned from entering restaurants, bars and other businesses for the first three days. Visitors can order takeout or do in-room hotel dining.

Upon arrival in Hong Kong, visitors must take a PCR test and await the results after day 3. If the test is negative, there are no restrictions on entering public premises, including restaurants and bars.

Incoming travelers will no longer need a negative PCR test within 48 hours before boarding a plane to Hong Kong. Instead, they will need to present a negative Covid-19 result from a rapid antigen test conducted within 24 hours before the flight.

Visitors must be fully vaccinated for Covid-19 unless they have a valid medical certificate for exemption.
