China will reopen its borders on Sunday, including with its special administrative region of Hong Kong, after nearly three years of COVID-19 closures and restrictions.

Passengers entering China will no longer have to quarantine or take a COVID test on arrival, the National Health Commission said.

For international cruise ships, pilot programmes will be carried out, followed by a phased resumption of full services.BORDER CHECKPOINTS Travellers from both Hong Kong and China must obtain a negative COVID test result and log it online within 48 hours of departure. A further 10,000 people from Hong Kong are expected to enter the mainland daily via the Macau-Hong Kong-Zhuhai bridge, or via ferry or air routes. There are no quotas on those routes, but transportation services will only gradually be ramped up.Prior to the pandemic, there were more than 236 million passenger trips annually across the land borders between Hong Kong and the mainland, government data showed, for an average of nearly 650,000 per day.
