New changes to UK inbound flights effective 28th June 2021.
The HKSAR Government has just released new changes to inbound flights due to the rising cases of the Delta variant in the UK. The change in country class from B to A2 means the quarantine period will be 21 days with NO reduction for fully immunised passengers. The scheme to reduce quarantine to 7 days with a positive COVID antibody test will also NOT apply to passengers arriving from the UK. Other countries in class B including France, Italy, Germany and USA are not affected by these changes.
For more information, go to the HK Government COVID travel site here.
You may still consider a COVID antibody blood test before you travel, in case the rules change again before you return to HK. At present, the HKSAR Government does not recognise any antibody tests done in any other country except HK and the certificate lasts for 3 months.
