COVID-19: Chinese Govt Suspends Nigerians, Others From Entering China

COVID-19 China Bars Non Chinese Travellers From India Britain Belgium the Philippines China suspends entry of foreigners from the UK and the Philippines

The announcement by the Chinese side comes in the backdrop after 19 Indians tested covid positive on Vande Bharat flight from Delhi to Wuhan on October 30.

China barred entry to all foreign nationals including Russians in March as the virus spread across the world.

In a sharp reversal, as the outbreak once more billows out across Europe, the Chinese embassy in the United Kingdom on Wednesday said Beijing had made a decision to "temporarily suspend" entry from Britain by non-Chinese nationals. "The entry into China with visas issued after November 3rd, 2020 is not affected", the Chinese statement said.

Sources said this after China announced a temporary ban on entry of foreign nationals from India with a valid Chinese visa or residence permit citing COVID reasons. China where the virus originated late previous year has largely brought its outbreak under control through tight travel restrictions and stringent health measures for anyone entering the country.

Russian Federation has confirmed the world's fourth-highest number of Covid-19 infections, totaling 1.7 million after new daily cases approached 20,000 for the first time this week.

In France, officials are hoping a new coronavirus lockdown will bring down soaring numbers of infections, with new daily cases topping 40,000 over the past week, while Italy has imposed strict new restrictions on freedom of movement in four regions. "The proposed flight on November 6 is therefore being rescheduled", said the Embassy of India in China in a notification.

Beijing has also recently tightened requirements for travellers from several other countries, making entry much more hard.

These requirements include the presentation of a health certificate from the local Chinese embassy showing the results of a nucleic acid test and an antibody test - within 48 hours of travel.

Flights scheduled for Friday are not covered by the new rule, since passengers would have done their tests before that day under previous requirements.

The notice affected the plans by about 2,000 Indian professionals and their families who have been trying hard to return to back to their work and businesses.

At present only Air India operates VBM flights to China.

The number of weekly global passenger flights serving mainland China from late October through March is set to slump 96.8% from a year earlier to 592, the latest schedules show.
