IMPACT — MEDIUM
Under a change that took effect Aug. 30, China is no longer requiring a negative COVID-19 test result as a condition for entry.
Background: Following the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, China initiated strict COVID policies and entry restrictions. China has moved to reopen this year, reopening for tourist travel in March and simplifying testing requirements in April. The removal of the negative-test requirement for visitors aligns with China’s goal of fully reopening its economy and reviving its travel industry.
