OpenAI will not support the Hong Kong region (hkg1) for Functions

Vercel customers making API requests to OpenAI from Functions in Hong Kong (hkg1) may have received an email from OpenAI identifying API traffic from a region that OpenAI does not currently support.

OpenAI will take additional steps to block API traffic from unsupported countries and territories on July 9. We understand this block will include Functions in the Hong Kong region on Vercel. While the majority of functions do not execute in this region, Edge Functions may require updates to the execution region.

You can prevent this change affecting your deployments by specifying allowed regions for your functions and excluding Hong Kong. Changing regions requires a redeployment of your application.
