HK lifts all restrictions on arrival

Hong Kong has removed all restrictions on inbound travellers, allowing them to access public venues upon arrival. They will still be required to take PCR tests, however, and those who test negative will no longer need an amber health code and can enter restaurants and other premises previously off limits to them upon proof of vaccination. Previously, travellers were subjected to curbs during their first three days of stay. Residents will also no longer be needed to scan QR codes with their ‘Leave Home Safe’ app to record visits to premises, according to Chief Executive John Lee Ka-chiu. Those who test positive, however, will still get a red health code and have to follow the usual isolation protocols. Lee said the Executive Council believes that the lifting of the measures will not increase the risk of local outbreaks.
