Under Cap.599H, the Hong Kong government required travelers from high-risk areas such as Bangladesh, Nepal, Indonesia, Pakistan, Philippines, South Africa – and just recently US and Kazakhstan – to provide test results showing that they are negative of COVID-19 before they can be allowed to board their flight to Hong Kong. They must also have a room reservation in a hotel where they can stay for the whole duration of their 14-day mandatory quarantine.
