Vaccine pass:

As inbound travellers from places outside Hong Kong may not be able to fulfill the requirements of the Vaccine Pass (current requirements as at 5 May 2022:  having received the third dose of vaccine), inbound travellers who are subject to compulsory quarantine will be issued with a vaccination record QR code and a Provisional Vaccine Pass for local use in Hong Kong apart from a compulsory quarantine order at boundary control points (including land and airport boundary control points) upon entering Hong Kong.

Inbound travellers may carry with them or present the Provisional Vaccine Pass as a substitute for the vaccination record to enter specified premises (including the university campus) under the Vaccine Pass.

The Government also requires using the ‘LeaveHomeSafe’ mobile application. You may save the Provisional Vaccine Pass to ‘LeaveHomeSafe’ so as to facilitate scanning on entering Vaccine Pass premises subject to active checking.
