This was publicised on WeChat today... the Chinese Consulate in Los Angeles (17 June) is stipulating that returning to China from the US (with residency permit) is still meant to be only for emergency/humanitarian reasons or to resume work, and they're suggesting contacting the Consulate General for the go-ahead before buying plane tickets, arranging PCR tests etc.

Hong Kong, unlike the Mainland, is visa-free for visitors from most countries. Many get a 90-day stay. (Britons get 180 days.)

Given how careful the mainland has been recently about entering (even increasing quarantine restrictions in some cases), I find it hard to believe they would leave HK as a gaping loophole. Especially at a time when they're being very public about Beijing increasing control there.

 

Also with international events in 2022 like the winter Olympics (Beijing) and the Asian Games (Hangzhou) on the horizon, and the imminent celebrations for the 100th anniversary of the CPC, this wouldn't be a good time to show negligence. I think they will be keen to show they have everything under better control than Tokyo has demonstrated.

Possibly worth adding that there's on-going discussion right now about how to treat people who are fully vaccinated.

 

The issue seems to be that the Chinese Sinovac and Sinopharm vaccines aren't officially approved by the various regional bodies (the US's FDA, the EU's EMA etc) even though they have WHO "emergency approval".  And until they get this, it's unlikely that China will give reciprocal approval to foreign vaccinations.

 

There's a chance this could all change soon of course, but it makes planning international travel extremely difficult.
