COVID-19: Hong Kong to ban all British travellers after adding UK to ‘extremely high-risk’ list – reports | World News
Hong Kong is to ban all British travellers after putting the UK back on its “extremely high-risk’ coronavirus list, according to local media reports.
The move – which the South China Morning Post reports will be coming into effect from this Thursday – is expected to have a big impact on business travellers.
The SCMP said two sources had confirmed the “imminent decision”, which comes days after quarantine rules for visitors were beefed up.
It means anyone who has been in Britain for more than two hours within the last 21 days cannot enter Hong Kong.
It has already banned arrivals from India, Nepal, Pakistan and the Philippines.
Last week it banned passenger flights from Indonesia after imported COVID-19 cases from Indonesia crossed thresholds set by the global financial hub.
