  • Press Release:
  • COVID-19 Thematic Website:
  • Extended meaning of "Turnaround" to temporarily left the aircraft for necessary technical and operational tasks  (for local crew with no inbound passenger)
  • Previous definition of “turnaround” solely applied to air crew who did NOT leave the aircraft during stopover at any port(s) outside Hong Kong throughout a duty flight. Air crew with such declaration were not deemed to have stayed in the port(s) concerned, provided the inbound flight to Hong Kong did not carry passengers.
  • The definition will be extended to encompass air crew who have, during stopover at any port(s) outside Hong Kong:
    • i) temporarily left the aircraft for necessary technical and operational tasks (e.g. flight crew's walk-around inspection), and
    • ii) remained at the airside of the airport concerned with no direct physical contact with local ground staff.
  • In order to facilitate operation and to avoid potential dispute among air crew members and frontline officers, airlines are advised to issue a standardised Airline Certification Letter to relevant crew members (attached). Airline operators may select the declaration statements from the list which is/are applicable to the concerned crew member when issuing the letter.  Please be reminded that without clear declaration stated on the airline certification letter on the above, and if in doubt, the concerned crew will be put on a more stringent testing & isolation arrangement.
  • The Hong Kong Government has just announced today (issued at Aug 03 / 01:13HKT) that the Government will tighten the border control measures for overseas inbound travellers based on "vaccine bubble" in order to build an anti-epidemic barrier to prevent the importation of cases. The new measures will take effect from August 9.
  • Upon implementation of new arrangement, the current place-specific flight suspension mechanism for Group A1 specified places will no longer be applicable. The flight-specific suspension mechanism is however still in place and will be applicable to all groups of specified places.
  • The Government will gazette the relevant updated specifications under the Compulsory Quarantine of Certain Persons Arriving at Hong Kong Regulation (Cap. 599C), the Compulsory Quarantine of Persons Arriving at Hong Kong from Foreign Places Regulation (Cap. 599E), the Prevention and Control of Disease (Regulation of Cross-boundary Conveyances and Travellers) Regulation (Cap. 599H) and the Prevention and Control of Disease (Compulsory Testing for Certain Persons) Regulation (Cap. 599J) to effect the above measures at 0.00am on August 9.
  • In view of the latest situation, the Government expects that the second phase of serology antibody testing arrangements will be implemented in mid-August, where self-paid serology antibody testing service for inbound travellers will be provided at the airport. Implementation details of the relevant arrangements will be announced later.

Muña. “Now that we are on the road to hit 80% of our eligible population being fully vaccinated, we should remain cautious while keeping the momentum in our favor.”

It is recommended to apply at least 72 hours prior to arrival into the CNMI, as requests are processed in the order of receipt and validation.

The spread of misinformation is just as dangerous as the virus itself. Consider registering for COVID-19 vaccinations at www.vaccinatecnmi.com, by calling the CHCC call center at 682-SHOT (7468), or registering in person at any vaccination site. Updates from the COVID-19 Task Force and the CHCC can be found on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts @governorcnmi and @cnmichcc, as well as through CNMI media partners.
