Travel Advisory Update for Hong Kong – Level 4: Do Not Travel (March 2, 2022)

The Travel Advisory for Hong Kong has been updated to reflect health and security conditions on the ground.  The Travel Advisory is now at Level 4: – Do Not Travel due to COVID-19 and COVID-19 related restrictions, including the risk of parents and children being separated.  U.S. citizens should also reconsider travel to Hong Kong due to arbitrary enforcement of local laws.

We made this update to reflect the current situation in Hong Kong, where a zero-tolerance approach to COVID-19 by the PRC and Hong Kong governments severely impacts travel and access to public services.  We especially want to note for families considering traveling to or residing in Hong Kong that in some cases, children in Hong Kong who test positive have been separated from their parents and kept in isolation until they meet local hospital discharge requirements.

We also assess that the risks to U.S. citizens regarding arbitrary enforcement of laws are the same as in the rest of the PRC.  Please read the entire Travel Advisory, available here.  We also encourage U.S. citizens in Hong Kong to read our country-specific COVID-19 information on the Consulate website.
