Prohibition of vessels which have visited South Africa or United Kingdom

11 Jan 2021 / Hong Kong

Hong Kong’s Department of Health has invoked the Prevention and Control of Disease (Regulation of Cross-boundary Conveyances and Travellers) Regulation (Cap. 599H) to prohibit vessels which have visited South Africa or UK in the past 21 days from entering Hong Kong waters.

As new virus variants of COVID-19 with higher transmissibility have been reported to be circulating in both countries, quarantine measures have been tightened. All persons who have stayed in South Africa or UK for more than two hours in the 21 days before boarding will not be allowed to board the flight to Hong Kong.
