Pre-departure Covid-19 testing for visitors from China have been reinstated by the UK government as cases increase ahead of the country’s preparations to reopen its borders next week.
Beginning on Thursday, 5th January, travelers arriving from China will need to present results of a Covid-19 test done no more than two days prior to departure.
According to the government, the choice was made to implement the restrictions especially for Chinese immigrants because of a “lack of comprehensive health information” given by China.
Additionally, starting on Sunday, 8th January, the UK Health Security Agency will begin surveillance, which will involve testing a sample of travelers arriving in England from the Chinese mainland for the presence of Covid.
England has announced procedures that will help identify and evaluate any new Covid variants among immigrants from China, joining a growing number of nations that have done so, including the US, Italy, Japan, Korea, Spain, Malaysia, and India.
The largest Covid-19 epidemic has been recorded in China as of late, and the UK Foreign Office warned prospective travelers that there may be a higher risk of infection.
“You should ensure you have a supply of medication for Covid-19 or flu-like symptoms,” the FCDO added in a statement.
“Covid-19 restrictions have been significantly relaxed, but some restrictions remain in place across mainland China.”
