  • For example, for a person who has not been infected with COVID-19 previously and received the last recommended dose of COVID-19 vaccine on 10 May 2021, the "1st day" would be 11 May and the "14th day" would be 24 May. This person can be considered "fully vaccinated" starting on 24 May.

    Cases who are allowed to board

  • The following categories of persons who have stayed in any place outside China during the relevant period are allowed to board –
    (i) those who are unfit for vaccination due to health reasons with relevant proof issued by a medical practitioner; or

    (ii) those who have received one dose of recognised COVID-19 vaccine but certified by a medical practitioner that they were unfit to receive the second dose of COVID-19 vaccine because of health reasons after receiving the first dose of vaccine, and board a specified aircraft on or after 14th day after receiving the said first dose of vaccine; or

    (iii) children aged 11 or below accompanied for boarding and compulsory quarantine by relevant persons who comply with the boarding requirements.
