Hong Kong to open international borders for the first time post-Covid

Hong Kong will open international borders in May allowing non-residents to fly for the first time since Covid-19 border closure.

The government made a statement on Friday that Hong Kong's rules for airlines carrying Covid-19 positive patients will also be slightly eased, with the threshold for incoming flight suspensions rising to five Covid-19 positive patients as compared to three currently.

With the new procedures due in May, foreign travellers will be subjected to the same process as Hong Kong nationals.
