China Will Scrap Quarantine For International Arrivals

China has announced that it will drop its Covid-19 quarantine requirement for passengers arriving from abroad starting on Jan. 8. The information comes from the National Health Commission (NHC)and is the latest easing of the country’s strict Covid measures.

“According to the national health quarantine law, infectious disease quarantine measures will no longer be taken against inbound travelers and goods,” the NHC said.

Currently, passengers arriving from abroad must quarantine for five days at a hotel, followed by three days at home. That is down from as much as three weeks in the past.

Once the new rules kick in on Jan. 8, people arriving in China will no longer be quarantined, though they will be required to obtain negative Covid test results within 48 hours of departure. They will also be required to wear protective masks on board, Bloomberg reported.

China has long had some of the most strict Covid-19 restrictions in the world, but has been easing them recently. It also abruptly dropped many of its domestic restrictions earlier this month, which has sparked widespread outbreaks, hospitalizations and deaths. China has stopped publishing Covid statistics.

  1. I have ZERO interest in setting foot in China after the past 3 years. Actually, even before that I had zero interest in going to that Communist dictatorship, but that feeling has been reinforced by events since 2020. When the Communist Party falls, then maybe I’ll go, but not until then.
