China announced that the country is changing to its COVID-19 controls that will make it easier to enter the country, the first step towards easing its border restrictions. The measures include cutting quarantine time for overseas arrivals to seven days at a government-run facility, followed by another three days in home isolation.

The measures include cutting quarantine time for overseas arrivals to seven days at a government-run facility, followed by another three days in home isolation.

They mark the biggest changes to the rules since China closed its borders in March 2020, but the controls remain tough compared to many countries that have completely reopened and dropped testing requirements.

In addition, eight major cities in April cut their quarantine requirements from 14 to 10 days in a designated facility, a move that was followed in many other places.

While Beijing continues to insist on a tough “dynamic zero-COVID” policy, it has been sending signals that border controls could gradually be eased, as other countries are removing barriers for international travel 2½ years into the pandemic.

As of June 20, the foreign nationals have been allowed to visit immediate Chinese family members or foreigners with permanent residency in mainland China, and they no longer have to produce an invitation letter from a provincial-level authority when seeking an employment visa.

The aviation authorities also said earlier this month that the number of international passenger flights would increase and that they were in talks with several countries to add more. There are several airlines in China have said they plan to offer new international routes or resume them from this month.
