Recognised jab record list updated

March 7, 2022

The Government said today that from March 9, it will accept jab records issued by Benin and Jordan as recognised vaccination records for Hong Kong residents returning from Group A specified places.


Benin and Jordan are currently classified as Group A specified places.


The Government announced earlier that it accepts vaccination records recognised under the EU Digital COVID Certificate mechanism as recognised vaccination records required for the purpose of boarding flights for Hong Kong from high-risk Group A specified places.


As the European Union has recently announced the recognition of the jab records issued by Benin and Jordan as being equivalent to those issued by its member states under the mechanism, the Government will accept such records issued by these two places.


Hong Kong residents who hold a vaccination record issued by relevant authorities of Benin and Jordan in the prescribed format can board a flight for Hong Kong from Group A specified places starting March 9.


According to the Government's stringent inbound prevention and control measures for travellers from overseas places, those who have stayed in Group A specified places can only board a flight for Hong Kong if they are Hong Kong residents who are fully vaccinated and hold recognised vaccination records.
