China lifts its ban on the current boarder entry policy

Published by the National Health Commission of the PRC on 28 June, China is lightening its restrictions for overseas arrivals into the country with 7-day centralized quarantine plus 3-day ‘health monitoring’ at home or in a designated hotel.

The new policy was noted in the 9th edition of the State Council’s report on COVID-19 epidemic prevention and control.

During the ‘7+3’ period, the nucleic acid tests are taken on day one, two, three, five and seven, and on the 3rd day of the  ‘health monitoring’. Tests will be done via throat swab only.
