In Pictures: Hongkongers wait in hours-long queues to register for proof of overseas Covid jabs


By 9 a.m. on Friday, a queue of dozens of people has formed outside Wan Chai Post Office, one of Hong Kong’s 18 designated post offices that issue Covid-19 vaccination record QR codes for anyone who received their jabs overseas.

Geraldine, who was vaccinated in Paris, said she had visited the post office three times before, yet had still failed to obtain the QR code, or Provisional Vaccine Pass as it is officially known. “I came at 9.25 a.m. last time, but the queue was very long… I only came this morning because I know I have no work meeting,” she told HKFP.
