China Mainland further relaxes COVID-19-related travel restrictions

Effective January 8, individuals seeking to enter China Mainland will no longer be required to get tested for COVID-19 or isolate upon arrival. However, inbound travelers will still be required to take a nucleic acid COVID-19 test no more than 48 hours prior to travel, and test negative, to be admitted. This latest relaxation in COVID-19-related entry measures is expected to enable employers to expedite and reduce the costs associated with onboarding non-Chinese individuals seeking to work in China Mainland.
