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. Norway 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 189 956 385 people, among the total — 4 081 815 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 Sunday, 18 July 2021), the number of cases in Hong Kong is 11 959 people, total deaths are 212, and 65 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 Norway?

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, Norway 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.

Rules for inbound travellers are categorised based on the countries they are coming from (https://www.coronavirus.gov.hk/eng/high-risk-places.html). From June 30, quarantine period for fully vaccinated travellers coming from lower-risk countries would be reduced. However, boarding, quarantine, and testing arrangements for inbound travellers — including fully vaccinated persons (unless they are coming from 'Group B' specified places like Bangladesh, Belgium, Canada, Ecuador, Egypt, Ethiopia, France, Germany, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Romania, Russia, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine, the United Arab Emirates, and the United States of America) — from high-risk countries will remain unchanged. Places included on the list of 'extremely' high-risk 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.
