CHINA

Entry restrictions

  • Foreigners with visas or residence permits still valid from 28 March are restricted from entering China. This includes foreign nationals with APEC Business Travel Cards, port visas, persons who qualify for 24/72/144-hour visa free transit policies, Hainan 30 day visa-free policy, 15 day visa-free policy specified for foreign cruise-group-tour through Shanghai Port, Guangdong 144-hour visa-free transit policy for foreign tour groups from Hong Kong or Macao Special Administrative Regions and Guangxi 15 day visa-free policies for foreign tour groups from ASEAN countries. Diplomatic, Courtesy or C-Class visas will not be affected. Foreign nationals involved in necessary economic, trade, scientific or technological activities or for emergency and humanitarian needs may also apply for visas at Chinese embassies or consulates.
  • Many local governments require inbound travellers to inform their local company office and neighbourhood committee in advance about their travel plan.
  • The number of international passenger flights is reduced. In Beijing, international flights are not landing directly at Beijing Capital International Airport (PEK), but are diverted first to other domestic airports in Dalian, Hohhot, Jinan, Nanjing, Qingdao, Shanghai Pudong, Shenyang, Shijiazhuang, Taiyuan, Tianjin, Xi’an and Zhengzhou for screening. Travellers will have to undergo a 14-day quarantine at a designated facility upon entry. After clearing the 14-day quarantine, if the traveller enters Beijing after the second day the traveller clears the quarantine, the traveller will have to undergo another 14-day quarantine either at home or a designated facility for 14 additional days.
  • All land border crossings between China and Russia have been closed to travellers. Yunnan province has banned citizens from leaving the country by more than 30 land and river ports at the province’s borders with Vietnam, Laos, and Myanmar.
  • Non-Hong Kong residents arriving from mainland China, Macau, or Taiwan will be denied entry if they have been to any overseas countries and regions in the past 14 days. Hong Kong residents and non-Hong Kong residents arriving from mainland China, Macau, or Taiwan with no travel to any overseas countries and regions in the past 14 days will be subject to a 14-day compulsory quarantine with exceptions to those arriving for educational and business activities considered to be of economic interest. These measures will remain in place until at least 7 June, while the requirement for travellers to declare their health and travel history will remain in place until 31 August.
  • All transit/transfer services, including air transit/transfer, cross boundary land transport and cross boundary ferry transfer, are suspended for all passengers at Hong Kong International Airport.
  • Residents with travel history in Daegu and Gyeongsangbuk-do in South Korea, Iran, as well as Emilia-Romagna, Lombardy and Veneto regions in Italy in the past 14 days will be required upon entry to stay in a quarantine centre for 14 days. Residents with travel history in any other overseas locations in the preceding 14 days will be subject to a 14-day mandatory quarantine.
  • All inbound travellers from all flights to Hong Kong are required to take a shuttle bus from Hong Kong International Airport immediately to the temporary specimen collection centre at AsiaWorld-Expo to collect deep throat saliva samples and submit the samples at the venue for conducting COVID-19 test.
  • Most routes between Hong Kong and mainland China remain closed, leaving only Hong Kong International Airport (HKG), the Shenzhen Bay checkpoint and the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge open. However, only dual license plate vehicles are allowed to cross the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge. Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao shuttle bus services have resumed, albeit with reduced frequency. The Kai Tak and Ocean cruise terminals remain closed.
  • The authorities have suspended ferries and high-speed trains, as well as the Hong Kong section of the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail Link and the Intercity Through Train which is served by Hung Hom Station.
  • Foreign travellers are denied entry to Macao. Residents from mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan with travel history overseas in the past 14 days have been banned entry. Among the other residents from mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan, those with travel history to Hong Kong and Taiwan in the past 14 days are subject to medical monitoring at designated locations, while those from selected areas (Guangdong, Henan, Zhejiang provinces, as well as Beijing, Chongqing and Shanghai) are subject to 6-8 hour medical checks. Travellers from Hubei province and those with travel history to Hubei province in the past 14 days should present a medical certificate proving that they are free of COVID-19 infection.
  • All foreign nationals are denied entry, including transit into Taiwan. Exceptions include Republic of China (ROC) citizens, diplomatic staff, permanent residents (APRC), Alien Residency Certificate (ARC) holders and business people with special permits. Travellers will not be allowed to transit through Taiwan until further notice.
  • Travellers permitted to enter Taiwan will be subject to mandatory 14-day home quarantine.
  • Inbound travellers allowed to enter Taiwan that have had travel history in the past 14 days to Southeast Asia, America or Europe will need to complete the COVID-19 Health Declaration and Home Quarantine Notice and confirm if their residence satisfies the home quarantine requirements before boarding.
  • Travellers living with people who are 65 years old or older, children 6 years old or under, persons with chronic disease (such as cardiovascular diseases, diabetes or lung disease), or persons who don’t have a separate room (including a separate bathroom) will be required to live in quarantine hotels upon arrival.

Internal restrictions:

  • Mainland China: Railway stations and airports have gradually resumed operations and most provinces have resumed their inter-provincial road passenger transportation. Restrictions on public transportation and private car movement have been lifted in most cities.
  • Hubei province: Restrictions on outbound travel from Hubei province were lifted on 25 March, and restrictions in Wuhan have been lifted on 8 April. Railway and passenger flights have started to resume accordingly with the lifting of restrictions (Wuhan Tianhe International Airport resumed domestic flights on 8 April); however, international flights and flights to/from Beijing will remain suspended until further notice. Those who want to leave Hubei should confirm with their destination city on the local requirements. Various cities and provinces require all travellers from Wuhan to take nucleic acid tests (including Shenzhen, Zhejiang, etc). Shanghai encourages employers to let returning staff from certain areas take nucleic acid tests.
  • Beijing: On 29 April, the Beijing government announced a new policy that business travellers and returnees who come from domestic ‘COVID-19 low risk’ areas to Beijing will NOT need the 14 days of home quarantine. People who have travelled from low risk areas to Beijing and are currently under home quarantine can halt their home quarantine and medical observation if applicable. The new Beijing policy does not apply to travellers from overseas, Hubei province or other domestic ‘medium and high risk areas’. Personnel returning from Hubei need to register information online in advance and get a negative nucleic acid test certificate before purchasing the returning ticket. After arrival, they need to show the test certificate to enter the community, follow the 14-day quarantine requirement, and take another test before lifting the quarantine. Domestic travellers planning to stay at hotels must present a ‘green’ health code. Chaoyang District has been rated as ‘high’ risk due to recent cluster cases. Travellers from ‘high’ risk areas are possible to face quarantine and other requirements when entering other provinces and cities. As such requirements vary across the country, travellers need to confirm with the local residence committee or hotel in advance.
  • As the situation continues to improve across the country, almost all the cities and provinces have declared the local risk level to be low. The latest city is Suifenhe, the border city with Russia in Heilongjiang province, who adjusted its risk level to low from May 6. However, some cities also chose to strengthen their quarantine measures due to re-emergence of local or imported cases. On 10 May, Shulan (Jilin province) raised its risk level to ‘high’ due to new local cases, and has re-strengthened restrictions on local movement and public gathering. Several train routes to/from Shulan have also been suspended. Another example is Taiyuan (who did so on 3 May), Shanxi provincial capital, although it didn’t announce any change to its risk or response level. In Shanghai and Guangdong, public health emergency response levels have been changed from level II to level III.
  • A new directive has been issued providing more detailed guidance on community quarantine management, including a new clause that says for low-risk areas and communities with no cases detected, inbound travellers from non-high-risk areas are exempted from mandatory quarantine as long as they hold a ‘green’ health code and arrive directly (without a stopover in a high-risk area). As the risk levels still vary across the country, travellers are advised to confirm with the local residence committee or hotel about quarantine requirements in advance.
  • As each province has different variations of the application, travellers will need to check the relevant application for their destination and register their information online to get the ‘health code’ before the trip. Heilongjiang announced an ‘in-city code’ in addition to the three-colour health code. Personnel with ‘in-city code’ are restricted to travel out of their current city but can move freely inside.
  • Although such restrictions are easing, many provinces and cities still have in place community ‘close-off’ style management which means:
    • A reduction of exit/entry access to the community.
    • Access control of visitors and visiting vehicles: ID check/registration, temperature measurement at gate, delivery service is to be picked up at the gate of community etc.
    • If there are confirmed cases in a certain community, there might be a closure of certain units/areas for quarantine depending on the severity of the local outbreak. In Heilongjiang province, re-emergence of local cases has led to strengthening of such measures.
  • On 13 May, Jilin city was announced to be ‘sealed’. Transportations services such as intercity buses and trains for Jilin city are suspended now. People who want to move out of the city need the nucleic acid test within 48 hours of travel and register the information according to official instructions.
  • Hong Kong: The authorities have relaxed social-distancing rules from 8 May. Businesses will gradually resume activities and the ban on public gatherings has increased from four to eight. Social distancing measures are expected to remain in place until 21 May.
  • Schools will resume in three phases from 27 May until 15 June.
  • From 8 May, entertainment and sports premises will reopen in stages. The first stage includes reopening of entertainment venues excluding karaoke bars, nightclubs and party rooms, as well as cinemas, gyms, and beauty and massage parlours. Each venue should not exceed more than 50 people or half of its capacity, though this restriction does not apply to restaurants. A 1.5m (5 feet) social-distancing rule remains applied in all businesses and public premises, as well as a maximum of eight people at a table.
  • Most civil servants have returned to workplaces since 4 May.

Macao: On 3 May, the authorities introduced a three-color QR code system at border checkpoints and for entry into public administration premises and other areas. The three-tiered code requires people to confirm if they have been in self-quarantine at their residence or a government-designated facility. Visitors with red or yellow codes may be subject to further testing and movement restrictions.

  • Eurostar services: While trains continue to operate from France to the UK and Belgium, they do so at a reduced capacity. Passengers must wear a face mask or any other type of face covering at the stations and on board.
  • Thalys services: All passengers are required to wear a face mask. From 9 June, the rail operator will increase train frequency, to five daily round trips between Brussels and Paris (except on Sundays), and more trains linking Amsterdam, Dortmund and Paris.

Internal restrictions:

  • A level-three emergency (on a three-tier scale) has been declared allowing for additional restrictions and measures to stem the spread of COVID-19. From 11 May, the first stage of relaxation of measures began nationwide, except for in Mayotte. The authorities have divided the country into two zones; a green zone where the risk and spread of the virus is lower, and a red zone where restrictions will be lifted more slowly to limit the spread of the virus. The red zone comprises Ile-de-France (including Paris), Hauts-de-France, Grand Est and Bourgogne-Franche-Comte regions.
  • Since 11 May, movements within 100km of one’s residence have been allowed without the need to fill in a certificate. Travel over 100km remains limited to essential business and family-related reasons: such movements need to be justified using a certificate available on the interior ministry’s website in both printable and digital formats.
  • The use of face masks by anyone aged over 11 years is mandatory on public transport, with offenders subject to a 135-Euro fine. In public places, the wearing of face masks is highly recommended. Further related measures may vary by location.
  • Gatherings of a maximum of ten people are now allowed.
  • Most businesses have reopened, but cafes, restaurants, nightclubs, ski resorts and all other non-essential businesses remain closed. Those travelling in Ile-de-France during rush hour periods require a certificate from their employer explaining that they cannot work from home.
  • Schools have been allowed to reopen progressively, subject to social distancing measures; no more than 15 students per class and ten children in nurseries. Wearing a face mask will be compulsory except for children under 3 years old. Universities will remain closed until the summer.
  • Nightly curfews remain in place in several cities, including in Compiegne, Creil and Nogent-sur Oise (all Hauts-de-France region).
  • While most airports remain open, several major airports are closed. Paris Charles de Gaulle (CDG) will remain open until further notice. Paris-Beauvais Airport (BVA) has announced a suspension of all commercial flights until further notice. Paris Orly Airport (ORY) is closed until further notice.(LINK)
  • Inter-city plane, train and coach services have been reduced.
  • Flights to the overseas departments and regions of Guadeloupe, Guyane, La Réunion, Martinique and Mayotte, Saint Barthelemy and San Martin have been reduced until 15 June.
  • Travellers arriving in La Reunion must quarantine for 14 days.
  • No cruise ships/passenger ships of over 100 people are allowed into the territorial waters of the French islands.

Relaxation of restrictions:

  • Public parks and secondary education institutions may reopen in green zones from 18 May. Libraries, bookstores and small museums are also set to reopen in both zones.

  • The SoE remains in place in the following prefectures: the capital Tokyo,
  • Chiba (all Kanto region), Hokkaido (Hokkaido region), Hyogo (all Kansai region), Kanagawa, Kyoto, Osaka and Saitama. Earlier, these prefectures were declared ‘special alert’ areas, where measures to contain the pandemic are focused. The measures include school closures and strongly promoting working from home or staggering commuting hours.
  • Under SoE, respective governors are allowed to order the closures of facilities such as schools, cinemas, departments stores as well as ban the gathering of large crowds. Essential services, such as medical facilities, pharmacies, supermarkets, convenience stores, factories, public bathhouses and restaurants, will continue to operate.
  • The authorities on 4 May announced gradual easing of restrictions on social and economic activities in prefectures not on ‘special alert’. Some businesses, such as restaurants and department stores that were temporarily closed resumed operations by taking social distancing measures and operating in shorter hours. Public transport such as busses, trains and taxis continue to operate, though a reduction in services can be expected.
  • Restrictions on social and economic activities will be eased in prefectures no longer under the SoE. Venues such as restaurants, department stores, museums and movie theatres will be gradually reopened on the condition that social distancing measures are in place.
  • Prior to the announcement of the state of emergency, the authorities had already requested* all people to avoid large gatherings and for those already in areas with an uptick in COVID-19 cases to stay inside their homes. While no nationwide directive to cancel events has been issued, event sponsors have been asked to consider whether events are necessary. It is expected that various public events and access to places such as entertainment places, national museums and sports stadiums will be suspended until further notice.

*If requests are not respected, mandatory restrictions will be implemented.
