You&#039;ll be required to have a nucleic acid test prior to departure. You should confirm pre-departure requirements with your nearest Chinese Embassy or Consulate and your travel agency. You&#039;ll be subject to centralised quarantine at the first point of entry to China, with an additional period of home health monitoring that will be determined by the local authorities. Recent COVID-19 outbreaks have resulted in mass testing, residential lockdowns, closures of schools and suspension of public transport. Make sure you have enough food, water and medical supplies in case you&#039;re mandated to isolate at short notice. Access to medical facilities and other essential services may be disrupted. Ongoing response measures can include mandatory regular COVID-19 testing and the requirement to show negative COVID-19 results to gain access to venues and public transport. Positive cases are subject to the requirements of local authorities and may result in transfer to a designated medical or quarantine facility or additional testing. Further COVID-19 outbreaks throughout China are possible. Control measures, including flight suspensions, re-routing or increased quarantine periods, may be imposed with little or no warning. Stay informed of local conditions, particularly if you intend to travel within China. As previously advised, authorities have detained foreigners on grounds of &#039;endangering national security&#039;. Australians may be at risk of arbitrary detention.
