Updated Travel Advice
From 17 January, pre-departure requirements for travel to China from Australia will change. In addition to meeting visa requirements, there are health testing requirements. The requirements vary depending on your COVID-19 and vaccination history. There are multiple tests required within specified timeframes. Testing requirements may change at short notice. Contact the nearest Chinese embassy/consulate to confirm travel requirements. On arrival in China, travellers are required to quarantine for 14 days at a designated hotel or facility. Additional COVID-19 prevention measures and testing will apply. These will be determined by local authorities at the initial entry point and final destination in China. Further COVID-19 countermeasures may be imposed by China in the lead-up to and during the Olympic and Paralympic Games period.
As previously advised, authorities have detained foreigners on grounds of 'endangering national security'. Australians may be at risk of arbitrary detention.
We now advise:
Exercise a high degree of caution in China overall due to the impacts of COVID-19.
