The governments of Hong Kong and Singapore, on November 11, announced that the travel bubble agreed between the two sides will be thrown open on November 22. The move comes as a rare piece of good news for the tourism industry of the two nations that has been hardly hit by the Coronavirus pandemic.
This travel corridor offers a glimpse how places with less severe outbreak might be able to restart travel.
During a press conference, Hong Kong’s commerce minister Edward Yau said a quota of 200 residents from each city will be allowed to travel on one daily flight to the other. Adding further, he said that for this travel only those people who have been in Hong Kong or Singapore for two weeks and tested negative for Covid-19 will be permitted.
