Singaporeans can now travel to Hong Kong for leisure under the Singapore-Hong Kong Air Travel Bubble (ATB). However, just because you can…should you? Here’s why I won’t be travelling just yet.
From 22 November 2020 onwards, Singaporeans can now travel to Hong Kong for leisure, and vice-versa. But before you rejoice and start booking your travel tickets, here’s what you should take note of.
You’ll need to pay ~$600 in COVID-19 tests.
There are a total of 4 tests that you’ll have to pay for – a pre-departure and post-arrival PCR test, both ways.
- Pre-departure PCR test (in Singapore): S$200
- Post-arrival PCR test (at the Hong Kong International Airport): HKD 499
- Pre-departure PCR test (in Hong Kong): from HKD 700
- Post-arrival PCR test (at Changi Airport): S$300
Before you leave Singapore, you’ll need to have first taken a PCR test showing that you do not have COVID-19. Once you arrive at Hong Kong, you will need to take another COVID-19 test again.
