MNI BRIEF: China To Fully Reopen Borders With HK and Macau
China will fully reopen its border with Hong Kong and Macau next Monday, and will drop quotas and scrap a COVID-19 test that was required before travelling, said the State Council’s Hong Kong and Macau Affairs Office in a statement on Friday
According to the statement, people entering the mainland from the two regions, and with no overseas travel history in the week before departure, would no longer be required to undergo a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test to cross the border.
Travellers will also need to declare their health status when crossing the border. Those reporting symptoms such as fever will need to undergo testing by mainland customs. People who test positive can isolate at home or in other premises, or seek medical treatment, officials said.
