As for HK currently, all is good. I have a different view compared to your client tmyfefiatik - I've found very few restrictions (just have to wear a mask in public).
I can still go out drinking until 2 or 3am (if I want to do that) without much hassle. Had my first jab and get my second in about a weeks time.
woah - 3 week quarantine is A LOT! But thanks for the heads up, U01LGUYMJ6N! Given our time horizon in HK would be 2ยฝ months, I think we're ok with 1 week but not more (I'm fully jabbed) ... Let's see how things develop
I think it's 7 days if fully vaccinated fnhivdbmijzvgs
Oh nice! Thanks man!
Also for non-residentns?
Yeah
nfkygni Great news you got in! Were did you fly in from?
gpbvwoddkqpqfd Gov site says since 30 June if vaccinated you can get in via Group D (Aus + NZ) countries + 7 nights quarantine. Canโ€™t share the link but google for the gov site.
Ah, thanks so much for sharing U01E4UXC6R5!
rjsiihvrxp Arrived from Singapore, just before the new restrictions came into effect. However, halfway through my stay the local health authorities decided to retroactively set our quarantine to 3 weeks, from 2 (which caused some confusion with the quarantine hotel).
This was my 4th quarantine stay (2 x New Zealand, 1 x Taiwan, 1 x Hong Kong). Also had 3 x 12 hour isolation stays in Singapore too. So getting pretty used to the whole biosecurity theatre. It's interesting seeing the differences in approaches.
Awesome. Singapore also stated to relax border restrictions. Having said that, both govโ€™s havenโ€™t updated their sites yet to reflect this.
did not found the new, and like bcwfxycyol said websites arenโ€™t up to date

`Hong Kong will allow vaccinated tourists from 10 places around the world to enter the city from August 9, in a significant easing of some of the world's most stringent border restrictions.`
`Vaccinated visitors from countries now classified as "moderate-risk" โ€“ which include the US and Canada โ€“ will be able to visit the city for the first time since the pandemic began. Meanwhile, Hong Kong residents from previously restricted locations such as the UK and India can now return home.`
`Visitors and residents of moderate-risk locations will be asked to spend seven days in hotel quarantine upon entry and must have a positive antibody test at a Hong Kong government-accredited laboratory to prove they have a COVID-19 infection. 19 have been vaccinated against. According to a government statement, antibody testing facilities at the airport will be available from mid-August.`
`The easing, first announced by Chief Executive Carrie Lam on Monday without elaboration, also allows children who are not vaccinated after seven days to leave hotel quarantine with their inoculated parents โ€“ though they will be given a chance to be vaccinated again. Must self-isolate at home for two weeks. .`
`The revived plan, first mooted in June, comes as Hong Kong tries to reopen its economy after nearly two months without local transmission, while keeping away the highly contagious Delta tensions that are fueling new outbreaks around the world. is driving.`
`While low vaccination levels locally mean Delta's move to the city could quickly be disastrous, the financial center is also facing pressure from businesses over what are some of the toughest travel restrictions in the world. Rival hub Singapore has said it will ease travel restrictions in September, as it has achieved an immunization rate of 80%.`
`The easement has been made in only 10 places in the world, including the UK, India and Brazil, that are not allowed vaccinated visitors. For these "high-risk" locations, only fully infected residents can return and must serve a hotel quarantine period of 21 days.`
`The Hong Kong government also pressured the local population to vaccinate, saying only schools that achieve a 70% vaccination level among students in grades can resume fully individualized teaching in September. Officials said on Monday that teachers should also get vaccinated or go for routine tests at their own expense.`
`Vaccine bookings jumped on Monday after officials announced the easing, with the number of people reserving slots for receiving Sinovac Biotech Ltd rising from 4,200 on Sunday to 6,600 on Monday and for BioNTech SE vaccine from 23,100 a day earlier. increased to 41,600`

Country lists can be found at the top result with this query โ€œPoints to Note for Quarantine for Inbound Travellersโ€
Little update. Just called HK Health Dep. No plans yet to make antibody available at the airport. You need this one to shorten quarantine from 14 to 7 dys. If youโ€™d want that 7 day quarantine keep an eye on press releases at the gov dot hk site.

Lots of updates and removal of 7 day quarantine announced after a local case in HK
Thanks for the update U028P7W0QNB! Super helpful
Yeah, that is annoying.
I had to go and get a visa extension yesterday and my god, it was like trying to get blood from a stone...
They gave me 1 month and said there would be no additional extensions. Their attitude was that it doesn't matter that I can't get back into my country of citizenship (New Zealand), I could just fly to Dubai or Europe or somewhere instead....
21 fucking days for vaccinated people
I'm so pissed
In a tiny HK hotel room and get tested 4 to 6 times lol
It's a total shit show right
it's fucking nonsense
and they complain about why people don't get vaccinated, no wonder! there's no fucking benefit
Are there any updates on the quarantine stay?
I wish...
