Hong Kong to ease quarantine for travellers, close contacts

Hong Kong will ease quarantine for fully vaccinated inbound travellers and residents who are close contacts of people infected with Covid-19, loosening one of the world’s strictest policies amid efforts to encourage inoculation.
 

Fully vaccinated people coming from a handful of low-risk countries including Australia, New Zealand and Singapore will have their mandatory hotel quarantine shortened from 14 to seven days, health authorities said at a briefing on May 7.
 

They will be required to self-monitor for an additional week.
 

The changes, which were announced earlier, will take effect on May 12.
 

Inoculated people from high and medium risk origins will have their stays reduced from 21 days to two weeks plus an additional seven days of self monitoring.
 

Those coming from extremely high risk areas will still need to quarantine for three weeks, even if they’ve received their shots.
 

Quarantine will also be shortened from 14 to seven days for fully vaccinated residents found to be close contacts of people with Covid.
 

When the close cases involve new, more dangerous variants, they will be allowed to quarantine at home – rather than in a government facility.
 

香港放宽对接种疫苗人士赴港后的隔离安排

5月14日起,来自内地、澳门和台湾的中国地区抵港人士,除了“回港易”人士可以免隔离外,已经完成疫苗接种人士(即完成疫苗接种所需次数、剂量且经过14天),强制隔离时间可以从目前的14天减少到7天,外加7天自行监测,抵港第12天需接受强制检测。国家药品监督管理局批准使用的疫苗在认可清单内。
 

低风险地区(澳洲、新西兰、新加坡)

抵港的完成疫苗接种人士,可以仅接受7天强制隔离外加7天自行监测,抵港第12、19天需接受强制检测;
 

中风险、高风险地区

完成疫苗接种人士,隔离时间将从目前的21天减少到14天,外加7天自行监测,抵港第19、26天需接受强制检测;
 

极高风险及甚高风险地区

暂时安排不会改变。极高风险地区仍是禁飞所有航班;甚高风险地区,目前要21天强制隔离,即使旅客已打针,都不能缩短检疫期。
