HONG Kong requires all overseas travellers – except China – to quarantine in a hotel for 14 days
The Hong Kong government announced the changes on their official website which will come into effect on November 13. The new measures will require all visitors, except those from mainland China, to self-isolate in a pre-booked hotel for two weeks.
In addition, anyone travelling from ‘high-risk’ countries, such as South Africa, the United States and the United Kingdom must produce proof of a negative Covid test within the past 72 hours and have a booking confirmation for a hotel room in Hong Kong for no less than 14 days beginning on the day of arrival.
Failure to comply with the new government guidelines will result in a $10’000 fine or six months in prison.
The move comes as coronavirus cases in Hong Kong continue to surge, with Hong Kong’s Centre for Health Protection reporting nine new Covid cases on Tuesday, November 3, bringing total cases to 5’345.
