From midnight on March 11, Australia will remove the COVID-19 test requirement before departure for people coming from China, as recently stated by the Australian Health Minister.
The same goes for people arriving from Macau and Hong Kong.
Mark Butler, Australia’s Health Minister, further added that this decision is a calculated one since fewer COVID-19 cases are reported in China, and the country has equipped itself with better resources to detect and respond to new variants effectively. Plus, the authorities have considered regular data updates on COVID-19 cases in China.
In addition to this, other countries like the US, Japan, and South Korea have also proposed or already lifted such requirements for international travellers.
