Residents of Hong Kong are getting set for a major change to their travel arrangements in the coming months. The Hong Kong Government have announced that once fully vaccinated residents will only have to spend 7 days in quarantine after travelling internationally. The Government also added that those residents must take a COVID-19 test on arrival in addition to those quarantine arrangements.

This move is widely seen as the first step to the removal of quarantine restrictions altogether and a test for how strong the country’s vaccination regime is. Problematically though at this time, the rules are only being applied to residents of Hong Kong who have received both vaccinations and not to visitors of Hong Kong (who will still need to quarantine for 14 days on arrival).

What it does cover though is all countries ranging from high to low risk and inclusive of India, Singapore, the US and the UK.

The restrictions are being brought in over July and will change as Hong Kong executives assess the ongoing worldwide Coronavirus situation.
