All actual information about COVID-19 (prevention, statistics, symptoms and more) you can find on WHO website and in Google feed.

2019 divided the history of most countries into «before» and «after». We are talking about a pandemic that has swept the whole world. The SARS-CoV-2 virus was first identified among residents of Hubei province (China). In just a few months, a disease called Covid-19 has spread to the inhabitants of the entire planet. Austria and Hong Kong were not an exception.

Why is covid so dangerous? Regardless of the level of development of a particular state, medical care and other factors, millions of people have become victims of the coronavirus. According to the latest data, this figure is 177 039 062 people, among the total — 3 832 951 deaths. The main symptoms of the disease are: shortness of breath, high fever, dry cough, loss of taste and smell. The world’s leading countries have developed or are working on the production of their own vaccines that protect against COVID-19. Naturally, vaccination is not a 100% guarantee of protection against coronavirus, however, when infected, the disease is transferred much easier.

According to current data (statistics for Saturday, 5 June 2021), the number of cases in Hong Kong is 11 852 people, total deaths are 210, and 58 are sick right now. Such statistics forced the government of the state of Hong Kong to impose certain restrictions on flights and border crossing.

Is it allowed to enter Hong Kong from Austria?

Current statistics on the restrictions on entry to Hong Kong:

  • Open to citizens: Yes
  • Open to s: Partially
  • Open to foreigners and tourists: Partially
  • Quarantine (lockdown) in Hong Kong: Partial

During the most «acute» periods of the pandemic, the following restrictions are applied in Hong Kong:

  1. Foreigners can enter the territory of Hong Kong only if absolutely necessary: study in Hong Kong, employment, residence permit. For more information about the conditions of entry, read the official sources of the government: https://www.timeout.com/hong-kong/things-to-do/things-you-need-to-know-about-hong-kongs-social-distancing-restrictions
  2. Availability of the test: All arrivals from high-risk countries will be required to present negative COVID-19 test results, no older than 72 hours

All countries are divided into 3 main categories by the Ministry of Health:

  • «Green» (low rate of spread of coronavirus)
  • «Orange» (average rate of spread of coronavirus)
  • «Red» (high rate of spread of coronavirus)

In this regard, the government acts in accordance with the recommendations of the World Health Association. The distribution of states into separate categories is updated regularly. At the moment, Austria ranks among the states of the «Orange» category.

The main reasons for the introduction of new restrictions are coronavirus mutations, an increase in the number of cases, and insufficient vaccination rates.

List of countries for which the borders with Estonia are partially or completely open:

In Hong Kong, bars and restaurants work with restrictions, all shops work without restrictions. Public events (exhibitions, concerts, museums, etc.) are allowed but with restrictions.

Foreigners can cross the border if all the conditions for entering the country are strictly kept to:

The public is encouraged to avoid all non-essential travel outside the city. All Hong Kong residents returning to town are required to submit a health declaration form and undergo a swab test for the Covid-19 virus at the Temporary Specimen Collection Centre (TSCC) set up in the airport’s restricted area.Since May 12, compulsory quarantine periods will be shortened for travellers from low-risk countries and those who have completed their Covid-19 vaccination. Rules for inbound travellers are categorised based on the countries they are coming from (https://www.coronavirus.gov.hk/eng/high-risk-places.html). Fully vaccinated travellers from low-risk places like Australia, New Zealand, will only quarantine for seven days in designated quarantine hotels followed by a seven-day self-monitoring period and compulsory testing on the 12th day of arrival in the city. However, boarding, quarantine, and testing arrangements for inbound travellers — including fully vaccinated persons (unless they are coming from 'Group B' specified places like Argentina, Bangladesh, Belgium, Canada, Ecuador, Egypt, Ethiopia, France, Germany, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Kazakhstan, Kenya, and Malaysia, among others) — from high-risk countries will remain unchanged. Places included on the list of 'extremely' high-risk (https://bit.ly/3oUC6qS) countries will need to complete the compulsory quarantine for 21 days, self-monitor further for another seven days, and be subject to nucleic acid testing on the 26th day from their return to Hong Kong.The quarantine-free air bubble slated to take off on May 26 — after its initial planned launch in November 2020 — is deferred for the second time due to the worsening Covid-19 situation in Singapore. Both cities remain strongly committed to launching the ATB safely, so authorities will review the developments and closely monitor the numbers of positive cases in the next few days before they announce the next launch date.

At the moment, there are no other restrictions on entering the territory of Hong Kong. At the same time, the government recommends waiting for travel to countries with extremely high rates of covid-19 spread (red zone).

Those with wedding plans can only invite up to 20 attendees to their nuptial ceremony, but the reception is a no-no, as food and drink are prohibited. Under the vaccine bubble, the number of invitees can be increased to 50 for indoor and 100 for an outdoor wedding.Restaurants, along with gyms, hotels, and cinemas, are required to display QR codes for the LeaveHomeSafe mobile app, which records your whereabouts and checks whether you have visited any venues as a Covid-19 patient at the same time.
