Greetings from the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office (HKETO) in Singapore. We are pleased to inform you that Hong Kong has further eased the travel rules. The Amber Code for inbound travellers during the first three days of arrival has been lifted - they can now enter restaurants, gymnasium, beauty parlours etc without restrictions.
Thanks to the support from your organisation in offering internship places in the 2020 round of the internship scheme which unfortunately did not materialise due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As the pandemic situation has greatly improved, Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Government will resume the internship scheme in 2023, which will be administered by Hong Kong Economic and Trade Offices (HKETOs) in Singapore, Jakarta and Bangkok.

We are excited to share with you that Hong Kong has scrapped mandatory hotel quarantine for inbound travellers. We have also streamlined the entry arrangements, as part of our roadmap to connect with the world and facilitate activities and people flow essential to socio-economic recovery. Here are some highlights under the new “0+3” model:
Arrivals will not require a pre-flight PCR test but will be screened upon arrival under a ‘test-and-go’ practice which will not require them to wait at the airport.
The Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office in Singapore (Singapore ETO) hosted a gala dinner in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, today (August 27) to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR), with around 250 guests attending the event.
From August 12, 2022 (Hong Kong time), inbound persons from overseas places or Taiwan will be subject to quarantine under the "3+4" model, i.e. 3-day compulsory quarantine period at designated quarantine hotels (DQHs) (https://www.coronavirus.gov.hk/eng/designated-hotel.html), followed by 4-day medical surveillance period at home or other self-arranged accommodation, subject to Amber Code restrictions under the Vaccine Pass and banned from certain high-risk premises.
