China has announced that it plans to introduce a vaccine passport to help travelers with certain travel restrictions. The country currently requires a mandatory 14-day quarantine for international travelers.
Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said they are willing to explore mutual recognition of foreign vaccine passports as proof of vaccination.
According to Chinese officials with this, international travelers will be excluded from the mandatory 14-day quarantine, but they will still need to provide a negative PCR test before departure. Meanwhile, domestic travelers can benefit from restriction-free travel without needing to provide a negative PCR test result.
With this announcement China joins a handful of countries to introduce a vaccine passport.
