Please note that: All pre-departure and post-arrival quarantine and testing Requirements have been lifted for all travelers.

Hong Kong Health Declaration is no longer required.

As a Hong Kong passport holder, we know you want to start traveling again. We can confirm most countries request incoming visitors to have a PCR test before the trip. In this case, the Hong Kong Government provides free and self-paid tests according to the center you decide to visit. Health authorities in every country are trying to keep track of travelers as soon as they land, so some may need you to fill out a health declaration before traveling.
