Hong Kong Drops Nearly All Entry Restrictions, Allowing Tourists to Visit Theme Parks & Eat at Restaurants

Nearly three years after Hong Kong slammed shut its doors to the world as the coronavirus emerged, the city has finally dropped the last of its restrictions on arriving tourists. Visitors to the special region of China can now enjoy restaurants and tourist attractions like Hong Kong Disneyland from arrival day!

Guests looking to visit the world’s most picturesque Disney park can finally do so without worry. Hong Kong Disneyland is now open to all visitors — without the need for the medical surveillance period, the controversial LeaveHomeSafe contact tracing app, etc. As long as visitors test negative for COVID-19 upon arrival in Hong Kong, they are free to explore the city including the park, as well as dine in restaurants.

Hong Kong’s border saga has been intense. At one point anyone reentering was required to endure as much as three weeks in hotel quarantine, which was paid out of pocket. These requirements were slowly reduced, before shifting to what was known as the 0+3 scheme in September. Under 0+3, arrivals would be issued a health code which barred entry to establishments like gyms, karaoke boxes, theme parks, museums, and most critically restaurants. Guests were allowed to visit theme parks from November, but in-park dining remained off-limits until today.

Proof of vaccination is still required for entry to restaurants around Hong Kong, including those within Hong Kong Disneyland, so visitors will be required to register their proof of at least three doses of approved COVID-19 vaccines before entering the city. Visitors are required to take a PCR test on arrival at Hong Kong International Airport and on their third day, as well as take an at-home RAT test daily for seven days.
