Welcome to the Hong Kong Travel Health Service website.

With more people travel greater distances and at greater speed than ever before, it is easy to forget that all travel carries some health risks. There is nothing more miserable than getting sick while you are away from home. Smart travellers , on the other hand, seek health advice before travel to protect themselves and seek appropriate medical attention when symptoms arise while away or after returning home.

On these pages, you will find disease outbreak alert at specific destinations, useful health advice on protection against insects and other disease vectors, safety issues in different environmental settings, and recommended vaccinations. We hope that you will find these pages useful and will even introduce this website to your relatives and friends. We will continue to improve the layout design and structure of this site. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions, comments or suggestions. Should you have any comments, suggestions or enquiries, please contact us at trhealth@dh.gov.hk .
