Hong Kong is lifting most test requirements and ditching the Vaccine Pass for visitors.

From today (29 December), visits will be restriction-free to the special administrative region (SAR), although inbound travellers will still have to provide proof of a negative test.

This can be a PCR test conducted within 48 hours or rapid antigen tests taken within 24 hours before departure to Hong Kong.

Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) Chairman Dr Pang Yiu-kai said, “The new measures mark a key milestone for tourism revival and the full reopening of the tourism doors of Hong Kong.

“Visitors can now fully enjoy Hong Kong’s diverse offerings once they arrive in town.

“We believe this will attract visitors to Hong Kong from around the world. Taking into account the pace of outbound travel resumption in different visitor source markets, HKTB will gradually step up its promotions worldwide to uphold Hong Kong’s status as a world-class travel destination.”
