Hong Kong scraps PCR tests for travellers

Hong Kong has scrapped the PCR tests for travellers as it introduces transitional vaccine passes. Starting Monday, inbound travellers from overseas and Taiwan will only need to take a PCR test upon arrival at the airport and on the second day. The daily rapid antigen test requirement until the seventh day will remain. Undersecretary for Health Libby Lee Ha-yun announced authorities' move to scrap the PCR tests on the fourth and sixth days. Still, travellers already in the city must take the PCR on their fourth and sixth days. Lee continued that authorities would introduce a new transitional vaccine pass to benefit those starting the vaccination now and cannot fulfil the three-dose requirement by November 30. Lee said the transitional vaccine pass will remain valid until the recommended date for the next vaccination date.
