China Eases COVID-19 Travel Restrictions for Europeans

BEIJING – China had eased entry restrictions for nationals of 36 European countries, months after thousands were stranded when the state closed its borders and reduced flights to slow the spread of COVID-19.
Almost all foreign nationals were barred from entering the country when Beijing imposed the measures in March, even those who had a Chinese work or residence permit or a family living in the country.
But this week, China said it would relax some of the bureaucratic requirements for Europeans hoping to return.
The new rules will allow European passport holders from 36 countries – including France, Germany and the United Kingdom – with a valid residence permit to apply for a Chinese visa without an invitation letter, according to a notice published on Wednesday by the Chinese Embassy in Berlin on Wednesday.
Anyone returning to China must reapply for a visa, as travel documents issued before the pandemic have been canceled.
Previously, China had only allowed a small number of skilled foreign workers to return with individual official invitation letters – a process that proved slow.
China’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Monday that qualifying European passport holders will now be allowed to “apply for a Chinese visa for free.”
Anyone coming from overseas is still under COVID-19 testing and a 14-day quarantine – and will always have to find a plane ticket, after Beijing ordered a drastic cut on international air links at the end of the month March, and prices have skyrocketed.
Some of these strict flight quotas are also lifted, with Air France being authorized to operate three weekly flights between China and France from the end of August.
China has primarily brought the spread of COVID-19 under control after the disease first appeared there late last year, but there have been a series of local clusters in recent months.
