From 08 January China will open its borders to foreign travellers.
Ahead of your flight to Shanghai, you are no longer required to take a PCR or Antigen Test within 48 hours of travel.
You must complete a health declaration form via the China Customs website, this is required to be completed no earlier than 24 hours before your arrival into China. You can also complete this through the China customs app or WeChat account. You will be required to show the QR code you receive when you complete the Health Declaration form to our airport staff, so please make sure you have this to show on arrival.
Upon arrival, you will no longer be required to quarantine. If you display any Covid-19 symptoms upon arrival you may be asked to take an antigen Covid-19 test, any customer who tests positive from this test will either be advised to self-quarantine or seek treatment from a medical institution.
