Additional information

Domestic Restrictions

Mandatory requirements to check temperatures and use health apps or scan QR codes to prove travel history are in place at transport hubs, hotels, commercial buildings including restaurants, residential compounds and other locations – such locations are also increasingly needing the use of ‘health kit code’ apps to demonstrate health condition and travel history.
Restrictions on movement and quarantine arrangements remain for travel between different parts of the country. Some cities and provinces need travellers from high to medium risk areas to undergo 14 days of isolation in their place of residence or in centralised observation. Quarantine is enforced at the neighbourhood level and procedures vary, so check in advance.
The possibility that local authorities impose mandatory quarantine in response to fresh outbreaks is high.

International Tourists

The Chinese authorities have suspended all direct flights from the UK. This measure will be subject to review but no date has been announced. Restrictions on travel to China from other countries, and the necessary requirements, may be different. British nationals travelling to China from a third country should follow the directions on the website of the local Chinese Embassy or consulate for requirements from that country.
A limited number of international flights from other countries are flying into Beijing. Other international passenger flights to Beijing continue to be diverted to 16 designated airports in Chengdu, Changsha, Hefei, Lanzhou, Tianjin, Shijiazhuang, Taiyuan, Hohhot, Jinan, Qingdao, Nanjing, Shenyang, Dalian, Zhengzhou, Xi’an and Wuhan. A small number of international flights are also operating direct between European cities and Shanghai, Guangzhou and Qingdao.
All overseas passenger arrivals are subject to health checks on arrival (likely involving nucleic acid or swab tests). Those failing health checks may be sent to a designated hospital for treatment.
Health regulations surrounding passengers arriving from overseas are continuously changing. You should contact the Chinese Embassy before you travel if you have any questions regarding these entry requirements, quarantine rules or the requirements for individual cities.
Following health checks on arrival, you will then need to enter quarantine for at least 14 days. Quarantine is usually spent at either a centralised government hotel (with costs covered by the traveller) or your home. Quarantine requirements can change at short notice and may differ from province to province.
Every city in China has slightly different requirements for foreign travelers, but our travel advisors will tell you the documents you need according to your specific destinations. Here are some items you may be required to provide:
14-day record of travel itinerary
Health inquiry form provided by hotels
Passport and most recent China entry stamps
Nucleic acid test results
Entry and exit certificate
Accommodation registration form for foreign nationals
Certificate of employment

Testing Information

You must provide a negative ‘nucleic acid’ test for COVID 19 and evidence of having taken an ‘IgM’ antibody test. Both of these tests must be taken no more than 48 hours before you travel These rules may be subject to change.
Reports of both your nucleic acid (COVID-19) and IgM (antibody) tests must come from the same service provider. This does not mean the provider must carry out both tests, but that the provider must guarantee both test reports. You should not use the NHS testing service to get a test in order to facilitate your travel to another country. You should arrange to take a private test.

Hotels, Bars & Restaurants

Some are open but need to follow the instruction: Social distance keeping 1m, wearing mask in closed areas. Those entering bars and clubs are asked to present a government-developed app on their phone, which displays an overview of their health. They then have a temperature check, you may be required to fill out a form with their name, phone number and passport number.

Events/Mass Gatherings

Need to follow instructions of 1m social distance.
Government does not encourage gatherings. Indoor sporting and entertainment venues across Beijing have been ordered to close.

Measures encouraging social distancing, wearing masks in public, avoiding closed spaces, and other basic precautions remain in place. Controls may be further strengthened as necessary. You should follow the instructions of your local authority.
Inside the cities, public transportation has never been greatly affected; however, airlines continue to suspend a considerable amount of their domestic flights, while some long-distance railway services are being scaled back slightly.

International Tourists

Foreign nationals who wish to enter Japan for work or study and who have visited the UK or this list of countries in the past 14 days are currently not permitted to enter until further notice. This applies to foreign nationals in possession of visas issued since 1 October under the previous Global Residence Track. It also applies to certain countries that are part of individual Residence Tracks.
List of countries website: https://www.mofa.go.jp/ca/fna/page4e_001053.html
Other entry to visit Japan on a short-term basis, such as for business, tourism or to visit family, continues to be denied in principle for any non-Japanese nationals who have been to the UK or this list of countries in the last 14 days, other than in exceptional circumstances. Business Tracks with certain countries have also been suspended until further notice.
British nationals with Status of Residence in Japan and who leave or have left Japan with a valid re-entry permit are allowed to re-enter Japan. However, you will need to follow appropriate arrival and quarantine rules as set out below, and provide written evidence of a negative COVID-19 test conducted within the 72 hours before your flight departure time.

If you are coming from the UK or a number of other countries, you will also be required to spend the first 3 days of that self-isolation in a government-provided facility, with a further COVID-19 test on the third day. All arrivals are also asked to sign a pledge to abide by quarantine rules, with penalties for those who fail to comply with its requirements.
