Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Vang Vinbin stated at the press conference held in Beijing that from now on, passengers will not be required to report the antigen test result before their travel.
Thus, the last travel measure implemented due to the COVID-19 outbreak will be repealed.
On January 8, China ended its treatment of COVID-19 as a “category A epidemic”, lifted travel restrictions imposed under the Border Health and Quarantine Act, and reopened its borders.
While the mandatory quarantine application at entry to the country was ended, the obligation to report the negative result of the PCR test performed 48 hours before the flight continued until 29 April.
As of this date, passengers were only required to check their health status by performing an antigen test 48 hours before their travel, and to report the test results in the health declaration they filled in upon entering the country, but the airline companies did not check the test results.
