Travellers from China required to undertake COVID-19 testing before travel

The Australian Government will introduce pre-departure testing for COVID-19 for people travelling to Australia from the People’s Republic of China including the Special Administrative Regions of Hong Kong and Macau. From 12:01am on Thursday 5 January 2023, travellers will be required to undertake a COVID-19 test within the 48hrs prior to travel and show evidence of a negative test result when travelling to Australia. For more information, please read the factsheet on the Department of Health and Aged Care's website here.


Updated Travel Advice – 2 January 2023

From 12:01am (AEDT) on Thursday 5 January 2023, travellers arriving in Australia from China will be required to undertake a COVID-19 test within the 48 hours prior to travel and show evidence of a negative test result. This applies regardless of your COVID-19 vaccination status and includes Australian citizens. Other countries are implementing similar measures. China’s internal COVID-19 measures have been scaled down. To enter China, you need a nucleic acid test prior to departure. You should confirm pre-departure requirements with your nearest Chinese Embassy or Consulate and your travel agency. You'll be subject to centralised quarantine at the first point of entry to China, with an additional period of home health monitoring that will be determined by the local authorities.

As previously advised, authorities have detained foreigners on grounds of 'endangering national security'. Australians may be at risk of arbitrary detention.

Travel advice:

Exercise a high degree of caution in China overall due to the impacts of COVID-19.
