China – Pre-Entry Testing Requirement Lifted for China-Bound Travellers

30 August, 2023

With effective 30 August 2023, China-bound travellers are no longer required to undergo Covid-19 PCR test or Antigen Rapid Test (ART) before entering China. It is no longer required to declare the test result in the Health Declaration Form.

It will remain a requirement to complete the “Exit/Entry Health Declaration Form” before travelling to China from overseas, and present the QR code generated to your airline and/or at the airport upon arrival.

This remains the case for returning citizens, long-term residents and short-term visitors.

The form will be simplified to remove the question about your pre-departure COVID-19 test result.

The form can be obtained at, or completed via the China Customs Apple app, or from the WeChat app ‘Customs Passenger Fingertip Service’.
