Updated Travel Advice - 14 March 2023
You're no longer required to undertake pre-departure COVID-19 testing requirements if you arrive in Australia from China. To enter China, you need a nucleic acid test prior to departure. As previously advised, authorities have detained foreigners on the grounds of 'endangering national security'. Australians may be at risk of arbitrary detention.
Exercise a high degree of caution in China overall due to the impacts of COVID-19.
