Hong Kong May Scrap Hotel Quarantines and Pre-Arrival Tests
(Bloomberg) — Hong Kong may scrap hotel quarantine and pre-flight Covid PCR test requirements for incoming travelers, local media reported, in what would be the financial hub’s most significant moves yet to end years of global isolation.
The end to hotel quarantines, which were cut to three days from seven just weeks ago, could come as soon as this week, Oriental Daily reported. New arrivals may be asked to do rapid antigen tests rather than bring a copy of a negative PCR lab result conducted within the previous 48 hours, removing another hurdle that made travel inconvenient, Sing Tao Daily said, citing unidentified people.
