Mainland China has temporarily banned some travelers from the UK and Belgium as they experience an increase in cases of COVID-19.
China has also set strict testing requirements for all international passengers.
According to the Chinese embassy in Britain, non-Chinese nationals traveling from the UK are banned, even if they hold valid visas and residence permits with the exceptions of visa issued after November 4, 2020, diplomatic visas, and C visas.
From November 6, all international travelers flying to mainland China must undergo both a nucleic acid test and a blood test for antibodies against COVID-19 no more than 48 hours before boarding.
Passengers making transit stops on their way to China must also undergo these two tests in the transit country.
The UK begins a month-long lockdown today in an attempt to lower the number of new cases while Belgium has the highest per capita amount of new cases in Europe.
