Notice for China-bound Travelers
2022-12-30 06:52

Starting from January 8, 2023, COVID-19 will be managed as a Class B infectious disease in China, and border control measures will be adjusted accordingly. China-bound travelers are advised to read the following information to facilitate traveling:

1. Nucleic Acid Test

The above measures will be effective for all passengers arriving in China after 00:00 am (included) on January 8, 2023.

Travelers are required to take nucleic acid test within 48 hours before flight departure, and can only take flight when the test result is negative.

2. Health Code

Travelers are no longer required to obtain health code from the Chinese Embassy or Consulate-Generals in Australia before departure.

3. Health Declaration to China Customs

Travelers need to declare the negative test result to China Customs by filling the Health Declaration Form either on Wechat mini-program of China Customs (scan the QR code below),or at, or via the China Customs APP.

4. Entry Inspection

There will be no nucleic acid test when travelers enter China, and no quarantine for those whose health declaration and entry inspection produce normal results. In case of a positive test result or any symptoms such as fever detected by China Customs, travelers will take an antigen test. Those who test positive in the test will need to self-quarantine.

Please notice: Given the ongoing pandemic, the above adjustments do not mean the easing of disease control. Travelers are advised to take primary responsibility for their health, and use precautionary measures for self-protection.
