Live Webinar | Asia Reopening: Current China Travel and Immigration Strategies

25 AUG at 3:00 pm China Standard Time

China’s “zero COVID” policies have brought enormous changes to international travel to the country. While China has begun to reopen to international visitors, policies are subject to frequent changes, with some classes of travelers still barred from entering the country. Those who do travel to China are subject to stringent COVID testing and quarantine requirements. At the same time, given China’s huge role in international commerce, there is a great desire to travel to the country. Join our panel of experts, Helena Li, Edward Hu, Jane Li, and Paula Xu, as they discuss the current entry requirements for China, ongoing COVID policies and restrictions, what future developments are expected, and how CIBTvisas and Newland Chase can help you with your travel to China.
