Against the backdrop of the stabilization of the situation with the coronavirus, the Hong Kong authorities have somewhat relaxed the rules for the entry of international travelers since September 26.
Thus, the three-day mandatory quarantine in hotels has been canceled and the quarantine hotel system itself has been abolished. The previous “3+4” scheme – three days of mandatory quarantine and four days of self-isolation – has changed to the “0+3” formula. This means that during the first three days of the stay, the traveler must conduct a self-observation regime, according to which he is health code.
According to the new rules, the owners of the “orange” QR code will be denied access to public places – bars, restaurants, museums – for the first three days, but they can freely move around the city by public transport. The restrictive “orange” QR code can be removed as early as 9:00 am on the third day of stay in case of a negative PCR test taken on the second day.
Arrivals will no longer need to provide a negative PCR test before boarding the aircraft. However, they will need to provide a negative Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) 24 hours prior to boarding. In addition, they will be required to take PCR tests on days 2, 4, and 6 after arrival, as well as a rapid RAT test every day for seven days after arrival.
