More of Hong Kong's COVID-19 restrictions are being removed. The city is becoming more attractive to travelers due to the changes.

Travelers used to be required to take multiple tests. Incoming travelers arriving via air only need to get a negative test within a set period before they can leave for Hong Kong, according to a press release from the Hong Kong government. Within 24 hours of departure, Hong Kong will accept a RAT or aPCR test.

Travelers should keep photos of the test results or the test report for 90 days for presentation, according to the press release. The electronic health declaration form can now be used to declare your test result. Some airlines may still ask you to submit your results at check-in, so you may want to do that anyways.

The Vaccine Pass will no longer be valid in Hong Kong. Proof of vaccine is required for non-Hong Kong residents to board a flight to Hong Kong.

According to a press release issued by the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region in September, transit passengers who do not pass through immigration control are not required to have vaccinations.
