Covid in China: Countries tighten rules as tourism set to resume

China is opening its borders after three years – but as Covid cases surge, other countries are wary. Several countries have imposed new restrictions on travel to and from China due to a surge in COVID-19 cases in the country. From 8 January, China will allow more freedom of travel, ending quarantine for travellers entering the country and resuming passport applications for Chinese citizens. In response, the US has announced that from 5 January, all passengers traveling from China, Hong Kong, and Macau will be required to have a negative COVID-19 test in order to enter the country. Italy is also implementing mandatory COVID-19 testing for all passengers coming from China. Other countries, including Japan, India, Taiwan, and Malaysia, have also implemented additional restrictions on travel from China. The UK and Germany are closely monitoring the situation, but are not currently considering new restrictions for Chinese travelers.
