For which destinations do I still require a pre-departure PCR or an ATK test?

HONG KONG

Hong Kong is gradually relaxing its entry requirements. Flights to and from nine countries, including the UK, Australia and USA have resumed, and the mandatory quarantine period has been halved from 14 days to 7.

While this is a promising start, there is little visibility at the moment about further plans for reopening or insight into discussions. We have our eyes on this one and continue to wait patiently!

JAPAN

Tourists from most countries can now enter Japan on package tours. Students, business travellers and relatives of long-term/permanent residents can also enter. In all cases, you must apply for visa. Independent travellers however cannot yet enter Japan but there are signs that they will be able to do so from the fall.

SOUTH KOREA

In an exciting move, South Korea country has recently opened its doors to fully vaccinated travellers, with no quarantine requirement as long as they have had three doses of vaccine or their second dose within the last six months. Vaccination status must also be registered on the Q-CODE app. Showing a negative PCR result issued within 48 hours before boarding, or a rapid antigenic test issued within 24 hours before boarding remains compulsory to enter the territory.
