Asian Tigers Group China – International arrival quarantine will be removed from Jan.8th, 20234 Jan 2023
China has renamed the Chinese term for COVID-19 from “novel coronavirus pneumonia” to “novel coronavirus infection,” as issued in a statement released by the National Health Commission.
Starting from Jan 8, China will downgrade management of the disease from Class A to Class B in accordance with the country’s law on the prevention and treatment of infectious disease and remove it from quarantinable infectious disease management carried out in accordance with the Frontier Health and Quarantine Law of the People’s Republic of China, added the statement.
Currently, COVID-19 is classified as a Class B infectious disease but is subject to the preventive and control measures for a Class A infectious disease in China.
Authorities will drop quarantine measures against people infected with the novel coronavirus and stop identifying close contacts or designating high-risk, and low-risk areas, said the document. Upon arrival to China, travelers must obtain a negative nuclear test result within 48 hours.
However, if you would like to travel to China between now to Jan 8, you will still be required to be quarantined for five days at a centralized facility, followed by another 3 days of home quarantine.
Considering the huge increase in business we are likely to face after the policy change, we sincerely recommend you to contact us soon to arrange your relocation/s in advance.
