Hong Kong has shortened its quarantine period from 21 days to 14 for vaccinated travellers from the United Kingdom, although unjabbed arrivals will still face a three-week compulsory stay in hotel isolation.

The change will come into effect on Friday after the UK was moved from “Group A2” to “Group B” in Hong Kong’s system, which categorises countries depending on the severity of their Covid-19 pandemic.

Inbound travellers from the UK previously had to quarantine for 21 days at a hotel regardless of their vaccination status. Under the new measure, fully vaccinated travellers will upon arrival be asked to show proof of vaccination, a negative nucleic acid test result and proof of hotel reservation.
