Some Talk About Entry

Latest News: From Monday February 6th 2023 all Hong Kong - China borders will open. No more quota, no more PCR test (if you have not been outside Hong Kong, Macau the last 7 days). Seems we are finally getting back to normal!

There is some talk going on about opening the border - for business travellers - but that is a start.

This is of course far away from the 5-Day-Shenzhen-Visa for casual visitors, but remember, up to now there is still zero travel into China (except for people with official visa) since March 2020. The people that are going now are either returning Chinese, or foreigners that are moving to China for work - that requires a visa (that can take a few month to apply), a costly test, and some weeks quarantine in a hotel in China.
