Do you have to meet any COVID-related requirements if you are arriving at Hong Kong International Airport and intend to take the high-speed train into mainland China?

Non-Hong Kong residents aged 12 or above on the day of arrival at Hong Kong: Fulfilled vaccination requirement;

Persons aged four or above on the day of arrival at Hong Kong: Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) conducted within 24 hours or PCR-based nucleic acid test conducted within 48 hours prior to the scheduled time of departure (for arrivals via the airport) or before arrival at Hong Kong (for arrivals via other boundary control points), and obtained negative result; and

Retain the photo showing the RAT result or the PCR test report for 90 days


Fully vaccinated means the suggested dosage has been administered in accordance with the “List of COVID-19 Vaccines Recognised for Specified Purposes” https://www.coronavirus.gov.hk/pdf/list_of_recognised_covid19_vaccines.pdf of a COVID-19 vaccination course at least 14 days prior to the day of departure for Hong Kong.

Is this standard CDC card sufficient to meet the requirements for proving one's vaccination status?

Can a test in this BinaxNow kit be satisfactory for conducting the RAT testing?
