Flights from Britain to Hong Kong to resume, ending four-month ban

Passenger flights from Britain and Ireland to Hong Kong will resume on Friday, lifting a ban imposed more than four months ago to guard against more transmissible coronavirus variants.
 

Hong Kong authorities announced on Tuesday that it would no longer be categorised as “extremely high risk” for the coronavirus, and would instead be classified “very high risk”.
 

The inbound-flight ban took effect on December 22 as a mutant variant emerged in Britain. The embargo left an estimated 1,000 Hongkongers stranded in the country.
 

Previously, authorities barred anyone who had been in Britain for more than two hours in a 21-day window from boarding flights to Hong Kong.
 

The government earlier arranged two designated flights from London on April 21 and 28 to bring back residents who had stayed in extremely high-risk countries, which included Brazil, South Africa and Ireland.
 

Stranded city residents will be allowed to return on any Hong Kong-bound flights from Britain as long as they are able to secure an air ticket and a hotel room for compulsory 21-day hotel quarantine upon arrival.
 

They must also produce a negative Covid-19 test result obtained within 72 hours of departure.
 

香港5月7日起恢复英国抵港航班

香港特区政府网5月4日发布消息称,如果本地及相关外地地区疫情未有重大转变,将于5月7日起撤销曾逗留爱尔兰及英国的人士登机来港的禁令,让当地抵港航班可以恢复,并容许当地香港居民登机回港。
 

有关人士抵港后必须遵守最严格的强制检疫及检测安排,需取得起飞前72小时的核酸检测阴性结果,并持有预定21天指定隔离酒店房间的确认书才可登机。
 

抵港后,需在机场接受检测并取得阴性结果,在指定酒店隔离的21天期间需接受最少三次检测,完成隔离后仍需在抵港第26天接受强制检测。
 

不过港府将继续禁止所有曾逗留印度、尼泊尔、巴基斯坦及菲律宾的旅客从任何地方登机来港。
 

目前香港的入境限制是:任何乘客在过去21天曾逗留巴西、印度、爱尔兰、尼泊尔、巴基斯坦、菲律宾、南非或英国超过两小时将不获准入境香港。
