Hong Kong indefinitely extends entry restrictions

The Hong Kong government has extended, until further notice, the entry restriction on non-residents coming from overseas countries or regions by plane, as well as those having been to overseas countries or regions in the past 14 days preceding arrival at Hong Kong. All transit services at the Hong Kong International Airport will also continue to be suspended until further notice.

In order to prevent imported cases of COVID19:

• All non-Hong Kong residents coming from overseas countries and regions by plane will be denied entry to Hong Kong;

• Non-Hong Kong residents coming from the Mainland, Macao and Taiwan will be denied entry to Hong Kong if they have been to any overseas countries and regions in the past 14 days;

• All transit services at Hong Kong International Airport have been suspended; and

• All travellers coming from Macao and Taiwan, including Hong Kong and non-Hong Kong residents, will be subject to a 14-day compulsory quarantine, which is the same as the arrangements for people entering Hong Kong from the Mainland.

The entry restriction and suspension of transit services at the airport were scheduled to end today, April 7, 2020, but have now been extended until further notice.

Certain exemptions remain, including:

• Crew members of aircraft who need to commute to and from foreign places for performance of necessary duties or crew members of goods vessels;

• Government officials carrying out government duties including personnel of consular posts;

• Personnel engaged in anti-epidemic work endorsed by the HKSAR Government; and

• Spouses and minor children of Hong Kong residents.

On 5 April, there were only 813 passenger arrivals via the airport, a drop of nearly 82 per cent as compared with the number before the implementation of the above measures on March 24. Amongst them, only seven arrivals were non-Hong Kong residents.
