Other Points to Note

For persons travelling from Hong Kong to the Mainland (except those aged 3 and below), if they have stayed in Taiwan or overseas places on the day of departing Hong Kong for the Mainland or during the seven days before that day, they will still be required to conduct a nucleic acid test within 48 hours prior to departure (or, if the Guide on Epidemic Prevention and Control Measures for Travellers published by the Chinese Diplomatic and Consular Missions in the relevant places otherwise instructs, rapid antigen test may be conducted as an alternative) and obtain a negative result as per the Mainland’s requirements.
