COVID-19 IgG ANTIBODY TEST

The HKSAR inbound requirement for post-vaccine predeparture serology antibody test is discontinued effective August 20, 2021. The COVID-19 Antibody test is no longer required for reduced quarantine for eligible countries. For updates, check daily on the government website or other sources.

For persons who booked a test on-line for August 20 and after, we have to cancel the order and issue a credit card refund back to your card. On the other hand, you may need the test for other travel or other purposes. If so, please ask your doctor to refer the test as usual.

  5. Covid‐19 testing may be a requirement for many reasons such as pre‐hospital visits, air travel, Macau and China. Please check Covid‐19 test result validity times for your trip before coming for testing. Coming too early or too late may make your result invalid.
