    I just filled out the health declaration (I know I probably dont need do) and note it's now super easy and doesnt ask for details of my overseas vaccinations (1st dose, 2nd dose, 3rd dose, etc) like it used to on my previous visits to HK. Does this mean that unvaccinated people are now free to travel to HK?

    Yes they are no longer checking, but the law says no

    Is HK so attractive that an unvaccinated person would want to risk it to enter the city?

    In general, the non-HK airlines will rely on a third party to update their data / flow for boarding (this include stuff like which passports require what sort of visas etc etc). Many of these systems should update this week after the long holiday weekend. I'd be surprised if anyone asks for this green QR thingy by the end of the week.

    Ours taxied for 23 mins when we returned on NYE. Our flight landed in 2022 but it reached gate only in 2023 !

    Would be an interesting legal challenge on definitions of 'absent' etc
