The political situation in Myanmar is unstable. A local Hong Kong citizen accepted a radio interview this morning (23rd), saying that they had received two doses of the Chinese medicine vaccine in recent months and wanted to return to Hong Kong via Bangkok. However, the Hong Kong side listed Thailand as a high-risk group A area and needs to be vaccinated. For designated approved vaccines, if you want to successfully return to Hong Kong as soon as possible, you must get two more injections in Thailand to meet the eligibility for entry. They are worried about the health risks. "It is not a normal injection." I hope that the government can consider the relevant circumstances and exempt the relevant vaccine record requirements.

Karen, a Hong Kong resident in Myanmar, said on the radio that due to local political instability, the road back to Hong Kong was difficult. He originally planned to buy a direct flight ticket to Guangzhou at the end of August. However, Guangzhou suddenly revised its entry requirements and required three nucleic acid tests before departure. And 1 serum test.

She said that the medical situation in Myanmar was poor, and the test could not be done.

Karen continued that outbound flights from Myanmar are restricted. Except for Myanmar Airlines, most of the flights of other companies have been cancelled. No other flights have left Hong Kong in recent months. Currently, only flights to Dubai, Seoul, Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok are booked.

She said that she originally planned to return to Hong Kong via South Korea with her 5-year-old son. They had bought two air tickets and booked a hotel for vaccine inspection in Hong Kong. They spent about 50,000 yuan. However, the travel agency suddenly cancelled the air tickets without any explanation.

Hope that the government will exempt the approved vaccine record to assist in returning to Hong Kong

Karen pointed out that from the end of August to the beginning of September, he was vaccinated with two doses of Sinopharm vaccines and planned to buy air tickets to return to Hong Kong via Bangkok. However, the Hong Kong side listed Thailand as a high-risk group A area and required designated approved vaccines before departure.

According to the "List of Regions with Approved Vaccination Records", Myanmar is not on the list.

Karen said that if you return to Hong Kong from a medium-risk group B area, that is, Seoul, the vaccination record in Myanmar can be recognized; but if you return to Hong Kong from a high-risk group A area, that is, Thailand, it will not be recognized.

She said that she was thinking about whether she should go to Bangkok, but if she was given two more shots in the local area to return to Hong Kong as soon as possible, she was worried that she would bear the health risk.

She said that she had asked the Immigration Department for help. The other party stated that she had reported to the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department that Myanmar should be added to the list of approved vaccine areas, but she did not know how long it would take to discuss. The government arranges "chartered flights" to return to Hong Kong, or exempts the requirements for approved vaccine records. "Like Nicole Kidman, people who are not Hong Kong people can be exempted from coming to Hong Kong (quarantine)."

The director of the Infection and Infectious Diseases Center of the University of Hong Kong, Ho Pak Leung, said that it is not recommended that citizens who have completed two injections should be vaccinated again in a short period of time.

The director of the Infection and Infectious Diseases Center of the University of Hong Kong, Ho Pak-liang, said that it is not recommended for citizens who have completed two injections to repeat the vaccination in a short period of time. There is no medical need.

He pointed out that in principle, transit is not entry. The above case involves administrative measures. He believes that the government can understand whether transit in a high-risk group A area means that he has visited the place 21 days before boarding. The official website is not currently available. Specify, there is a need to clarify.
