Inbound Business Travel Predicted to Return to Hong Kong from Q3 2021

In a recent webinar update, the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) has predicted a gradual return of inbound business travel from Q3 of 2021 on the grounds of the vaccination programme started in most countries including Hong Kong. It is expected that inbound travellers from Mainland China will come first followed by other Asia cities in Q4 of this year.

The HKTB has also announced its 2021-22 work plan, setting out a series of flexible short-term and medium-to-long-term strategies to prepare for the return of tourists, attract high-yield visitors, and drive the sustainable growth of the tourism industry.

The Hong Kong government launched its mass vaccination programme to the public for free on 26 February, with the elderly, frontline medical personnel, as well as other public service workers among the seven designated groups prioritised to receive the vaccination first. At the time of publishing, some 539,290 residents had already received their first dose of vaccine.

Hong Kong has also signed the Travel Bubble Agreement with Singapore and is ready to kick off as soon as local cases are under control.
