Hong Kong is rolling out the red carpet to global travelers after years of restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Hong Kong SAR Government has lifted all mandatory PCR test requirements upon arrival for inbound visitors to the destination. The Vaccine Pass, which allowed access to specified premises, and other measures have also been lifted.
“The new measures mark a key milestone for tourism revival and the full reopening of the tourism doors of Hong Kong. Visitors can now fully enjoy Hong Kong’s diverse offerings once they arrive in town,” said Dr Pang Yiu–kai, Chairman of the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB), in a press statement. “We believe this will attract visitors to [the city] from around the world. Taking into account the pace of outbound travel resumption in different visitor source markets, HKTB will gradually step up its promotions worldwide to uphold Hong Kong’s status as a world–class travel destination.”
Take a Second Look at Hong Kong
The city has opened or revamped numerous attractions, world-class museums and accommodations over the past few years, so clients who have a case of “been there, done that” will want to return for a fresh look at this exciting destination. This continues to be one of the most Instagrammable destinations in the world, with its extraordinary gastronomic offers that range from the highest-brow experiences to the always-surprising street food, year-round events and exciting outdoor activities. The latter include hikes to Dragon’s Back for a view of Tai Long Wan Bay, the Zipline at Tung Lung Chau and rappelling at Ping Nam Stream.
Inbound travelers are now only required to present negative results from PCR tests conducted within 48 hours or rapid antigen tests (RAT) within 24 hours before their flights.
