Taken a COVID-19 test in Hong Kong?

* If you plan to take your test at a community testing centre in Hong Kong, you will initially recieve your test results via SMS.

Please have a copy of your full report (in electronic or paper format) and have it ready to show our airport team at check in. The SMS by itself is not sufficient for travel.
