  • Hong Kong residents arriving in Hong Kong who have been to any overseas countries or areas in the past 14 days are subject to compulsory quarantine at designated places (home or other accommodation) apart from the exempted persons under the "Compulsory Quarantine of Certain Persons Arriving at Hong Kong from Foreign Places Regulation".

  • Starting from April 22, 2020, all asymptomatic inbound travellers arriving at the Hong Kong International Airport are mandated to wait for test results at a designated location after collecting their deep throat saliva samples for conducting testing for COVID-19 at DH's Temporary Specimen Collection Centre (TSCC) at AsiaWorld-Expo. Passengers arriving by flights in early mornings and later mornings will stay at the TSCC to wait for test results after collecting their deep throat saliva samples there. They will receive the test results on the same day. As the test results for passengers arriving in afternoons or at nights will not be available on the same day, they will be taken to the DH Holding Centre for Test Result in the Regal Oriental Hotel by coaches arranged by the DH to wait for their test results.
