China Loosens Covid Testing Rules for Travelers From U.S.

What’s new: The Chinese embassy in the U.S. has updated Covid guidelines for travelers flying to China, allowing them to enter the country without taking a nucleic acid test seven days before boarding from Friday onwards.

This testing was one of the requirements imposed in January because of a surge in omicron cases in the U.S.

The requirement for passengers to document their temperature and health condition for a week before their departure will also be removed, as will the requirement to take an antibody test, according to a statement (link in Chinese) published Tuesday by the embassy.
