Omicron ban widened to Estonia and Uganda

Omicron ban widened to Estonia and Uganda

Starting Sunday, Hong Kong authorities will step up quarantine and testing requirements for Hong Kong residents arriving from Estonia and Uganda to guard against Omicron, the new Covid-19 variant.

The government announced that the two countries will be listed as Group A high risk countries after the detection of Omicron cases, meaning non-Hong Kong residents who have stayed there within 21 days will not be allowed to enter Hong Kong.

As for HK residents, they must be fully vaccinated and undergo quarantine in a designated quarantine hotel for 21 days, with six tests to be conducted during quarantine followed by compulsory testing in a community testing center on the 26th day of arrival.

Details on the boarding and compulsory quarantine requirements for different countries can be found at www.coronavirus.gov.hk/eng/inbound-travel.html.
