Quantum tunneling of vortices in very clean type-II superconductors is shown to be governed by the Hall term in the equation of motion. An effective action determining the tunneling probability is calculated. It is argued that high-temperature superconductors may belong to a class of very clean materials, and that they may have Hall tunneling at low temperatures.
