Registration of non-local COVID-19 vaccination records through voluntary declaration

2021.09.14

The Food and Health Bureau announced a new arrangement for members of the public to register their non-local vaccination records with the Government through voluntary declaration. The new arrangement will facilitate these persons to carry and view the records in electronic format for their daily use in fulfilling relevant requirements under the local vaccine bubble (such as entering into premises which require proof of vaccination).

As for inbound travellers already present in Hong Kong, they can declare online their non-local vaccination records through the "COVID-19 Vaccination Information Declaration" (www.chp.gov.hk/vac-df/) starting from September 15. Upon completion of the declaration, a vaccination record QR code for local use will be issued immediately. Those who are unable to make the declaration online can declare their non-local vaccination record at designated counters of Hongkong Post (list of post offices is in Annex) with assistance from the staff free of charge. An applicant will need to complete the declaration form and present the original copies of his or her identity document and non-local vaccination record for the purpose of declaration. Children aged under 18 or persons with a disability can authorise a person to register on their behalf.

For convenience, holders of a QR code of vaccination record for local use can scan and save the code with the "LeaveHomeSafe" mobile app. They may also continue to present paper vaccination records for daily use to fulfill the relevant requirement under the vaccine bubble.
