Die Infos:

“In view of the latest development in global and local COVID-19 epidemic situations, the Government will tighten the border control measures for overseas inbound travellers based on “vaccine bubble” in order to build an anti-epidemic barrier to prevent the importation of cases. The new measures will take effect from August 9.
“With the concerted efforts of the public and the Government in fighting the virus, no local case was recorded in Hong Kong for 56 consecutive days, thus basically achieved the target of ‘zero local cases’. However, the global epidemic situation has been consistently threatened with the Delta mutant strain ravaging the world, posing incredible challenges to local anti-epidemic efforts. Making reference to overseas experience, it is inevitable to find isolated imported cases despite the most stringent border control measures. We therefore need to build an anti-epidemic barrier for Hong Kong with a view to maintaining ‘zero local cases’,” said a spokesman for the Food and Health Bureau.
“Under the new measures, the Government will adopt a risk-based approach and re-categorise overseas places into high-risk, medium-risk and low-risk groups taking into account a basket of factors, including public health considerations (such as epidemic situation in particular places, testing rate, vaccination rate, volume of travellers and actual imported cases), as well as other local socio-economic factors. Boarding, quarantine and testing requirements will be implemented based on risk levels. Only fully vaccinated Hong Kong residents are allowed to board flights for Hong Kong from high-risk places. For medium-risk places, only Hong Kong residents and fully vaccinated non-Hong Kong residents are allowed to board flights for Hong Kong. All inbound travellers are required to comply with stringent quarantine measures and repeated testing. The Government will enhance checking on the compliance of inbound travellers in undergoing compulsory testing according to schedule as required and will strengthen prosecution against non-compliance.””
