Hong Kong entry rules *

Officially the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China, is reducing its quarantine levels.

With a change of rules last week overseas visitors are now subject to three days of compulsory hotel quarantine, down from the current seven.

However, they will also have to undergo a further four days of “medical surveillance”, during which they must test daily. Provided they test negative each day, they will be free to take public transport, go to work and visit shopping centres, but will be restricted from visiting venues where the checking of vaccine passes is required.

Allowing travellers to leave their homes or hotels during the four days is permitted, but they are prohibited from going into what is termed “high-risk locations”.

Hong Kong's Rugby Club has confirmed the beer and food fest that is the Rugby 7s will go ahead in early November (4-6). It begs the question whether the relaxation of quarantine rules will be enough to entice foreign rugby fans to attend, especially as a large proportion fly in/fly out for an extended long-weekend.
