As COVID-19 evolves, the Special Administrative Region of Hong Kong has been looking for alternatives to allow travelers to keep visiting Hong Kong in a safe way. For that reason, its Department of Health has implemented a new travel document called Electronic Health Declaration Form. This form must be presented by every person traveling to Hong Kong in order to guarantee they meet the conditions to enter this region.
Lufthansa is distributing this Hong Kong Health Declaration to passengers in all their flights to Hong Kong. However, here at iVisa you can obtain your Hong Kong Health Declaration before your flight in order to avoid any unexpected inconvenience.
