URGENT UPDATE - Restrictions for travelers coming to Hong Kong and Macao - Update June 1st, 2020

Hong Kong

Last update June 1st, 2020

The following measures are still in place until further notice:

  • All non-Hong Kong residents coming from overseas countries and regions by plane will be denied entry to Hong Kong;
  • All travelers coming from Macao and Taiwan, including Hong Kong and non-Hong kong residents, will be subject to a 14-day compulsory quarantine, which is the same as the arrangements for people entering Hong Kong from the Mainland.

Starting from April 22h they will be mandated to wait for test results at a designated location after collecting their deep throat saliva samples for conducting testing for COVID-19 at the Department of Health (DH)'s Temporary Specimen Collection Centre (TSCC) at AsiaWorld-Expo.

Passengers arriving by flights in early mornings and later mornings will stay at the TSCC to wait for test results after collecting their deep throat saliva samples there. They will receive the test results on the same day. As the test results for passengers arriving in afternoons or at nights will not be available on the same day, they will be taken to the Regal Oriental Hotel by coaches arranged by the Department of Health to wait for their test results. If tested positive, arrangements will be made to admit them to hospital as soon as possible for treatment, while the close contacts who traveled with them will be sent to designated quarantine
centers. Those testing negative can either go home or to a designated place to continue completion of the 14-day compulsory quarantine.

Transit/Transfer Services to Resume Gradually from 1 June, No Entry to Hong Kong for Non-Hong Kong Residents from Overseas

Air transit/transfer services at Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) will be resumed gradually. From 1 June 2020 until further notice, only transit/transfer passengers who have been checked through at the origin port and take transit/transfer flights operated by the same airline group are accepted at HKIA. Passengers should confirm in advance that they are able to enter the final destination. Please check with airlines for details.
