In a bid to further optimize the country’s response to the evolving COVID-19 situation, the government of China released a circular on November 11, 2022 outlining new requirements for travelers planning to enter the country.
Summary of Changes:
The duration of quarantine required for inbound travelers has now been reduced to five (5) days at a designated facility, followed by three (3) days of self-monitoring at home. Previously, travelers were required to complete seven days of centralized isolation at a designated site plus a three-day home quarantine.
China has also reduced the required number of pre-departure tests for inbound travelers. Where there were previously two tests required prior to arrival, travelers now only need to provide one (1) negative nucleic acid test taken within 48 hours from the date of departure.
As the Chinese government continues to review and update their response to the COVID-19 pandemic, always check the latest updates through China’s government website and Magrath Sheldrick Global’s news alerts.
