Update on Hong Kong

Hong Kong will complete an e-booking system for Covid-19 vaccine inoculations this month and is in talks with other countries to allow the records to be used for travel, local media has reported.

The electronic-registration system will record when and which type of vaccine a person/citizen has received and will remind the user when to receive a second shot.

Hong Kong has already reached agreements with Pfizer-BioNTech, Oxford
AstraZeneca and China’s Sinovac Biotech to acquire 22.5m potential doses of vaccines and is seeking a further 7.5m. The Government has said residents will be able to choose which type they receive, though the details are yet to be announced.

According to Cathay Pacific Airlines, passengers will be able to transit through Hong Kong if:

•    Their itinerary is contained in a single booking
•    They meet the entry requirements of their final destination
•    They have their baggage checked through to the final destination
•    They have been issued their onward boarding pass(es) from their origin
•    The connection time between flights is within 24 hours

Transiting to destinations in the Chinese mainland remains unavailable and only residents of Hong Kong are allowed entry to the city.

Flights to and from the UK are suspended until at least 25 January.
