The government last night said it will reactivate the online declaration platform for overseas vaccination records ahead of the extension of its vaccine pass scheme at the end of the month.

However, people can still visit post offices for such a purpose.

Hongkong Post said yesterday that it has deployed more staff, with the quota in post offices increasing from 1,200 to 2,400.

It will further increase to 3,000 a day next week.

Overseas vaccination records carried by arrivals are recognized by authorities, but people cannot use the records for the SAR's vaccine pass scheme.

That means they are not allowed into premises open to the public, including restaurants and supermarkets.
