Vaccinated Hong Kong residents who have visited the UK within the past 14 days are permitted to enter Hong Kong. From 1 May, this will be expanded to include vaccinated non-Hong Kong residents. You should visit the Hong Kong SAR Government website for further details.
*Proof of vaccination status: From 1 April, fully vaccinated travellers who have visited the UK or other overseas destinations within the past 14 days will be permitted to enter Hong Kong.
For travellers arriving from other countries, Hong Kong will accept proof of COVID-19 recovery and vaccination record and proof of COVID-19 vaccination issued in the Crown Dependencies. Your last vaccine dose must have been administered at least 14 days prior to travel. Your appointment card from vaccination centres is not designed to be used as proof of vaccination and should not be used to demonstrate your vaccine status. Children under the age of 12 who are not vaccinated will be allowed to enter with a fully vaccinated accompanying adult.
Travellers arriving to Hong Kong will need to provide a negative nucleic acid test result for COVID-19, taken no more than 48 hours prior to their departure. The Hong Kong Government has specified that this must be a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) based nucleic acid test. Other types of tests such as the reverse transcription loop-mediated isothermal amplification (RT- LAMP) will not be accepted and do not fulfil the relevant boarding requirement. You will need a separate certificate confirming that the testing laboratory meets the required standards.
