Notice for Italian Nationals - Restrictions for travellers coming to Hong Kong

RESTRICTIONS FOR TRAVELERS COMING TO HONG KONG

  1. All non-Hong Kong residents coming from overseas countries and regions by plane will be denied entry to Hong Kong. The measure will be valid until September 18th.
  2. Hong Kong residents arriving in Hong Kong from any overseas countries or areas are subject to compulsory COVID-19 tests. They will be mandated to wait for test results at a designated location after collecting their deep throat saliva samples 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.
  3. Hong Kong residents coming from Mainland China, Macao or Taiwan, will be subject to a 14-day compulsory quarantine. The measure will be valid until July 7th.
