Points to Note for Home Quarantine for Inbound Travellers

Health Declaration System

  • Since March 8, 2020, all inbound travellers via Hong Kong International Airport are required to submit health declaration form.

  • To be environmental friendly, travellers are encouraged to submit the form online.

  • After submitting the online form, the system will generate a QR code. Please save the result and show it to the border control point staff upon entering Hong Kong. The QR code is valid for 24 hours.

  • In addition, inbound travellers can continue to submit the paper form.
