Entry restriction on non-Hong Kong residents coming from overseas extended

The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Government has extended, until further notice, the entry restriction on non-Hong Kong residents coming from overseas countries or regions by plane and those having been to overseas countries or regions in the past 14 days preceding arrival at Hong Kong.  All transit services at the Hong Kong International Airport will also continue to be suspended until further notice.

The below anti-epidemic measures are currently in place:

• All non-Hong Kong residents coming from overseas countries and regions by plane will be denied entry to Hong Kong;
• Non-Hong Kong residents coming from the Mainland, Macao and Taiwan will be denied entry to Hong Kong if they have been to any overseas countries and regions in the past 14 days;
• All transit services at Hong Kong International Airport will be suspended; and
• 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.

In implementing the above entry restriction measures, a small number of persons are exempted for practical needs.  Such exemptions include:

• Crew members of aircraft who need to commute to and from foreign places for performance of necessary duties or crew members of goods vessels;
• Government officials carrying out government duties including personnel of consular posts;
• Personnel engaged in anti-epidemic work endorsed by the HKSAR Government; and
• Spouses and minor children of Hong Kong residents.

The COVID-19 pandemic has proliferated around the world and the situation is severe. As the situation continues to evolve, the HKSAR Government will continue to make prompt responses to roll out measures. We will keep you posted of the latest developments.
