China reopens borders with Hong Kong after 3 years of lockdown

China has reopened its border with Hong Kong after 3 years. Hong Kong expects an increase in travelers to China.

Where: Hong Kong and China

The Facts

China removed the quarantine restriction for travelers inbound from Hong Kong on Sunday. This marked the end of almost three years of lockdown since the first surge of Covid-19 cases hit China.
After years of travel to mainland China being impossible due to Covid-19 prevention, Hong Kong now has a daily quota of 60,000 residents allowed to enter the mainland from three different land control points, according to the HKSAR government.
An additional 10,000 quota is available through ferry terminals, the Hong Kong International Airport, and the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge.
Over the past three years, China imposed multiple zero-Covid policies that notably impacted the nation’s economy.
Anti-virus efforts and economic development will go hand in hand as part of the new optimized Covid-19 response.
