China will cancel quarantine for all international arrivals from January 8.
It comes as the country's National Health Commission announced that, from that date, the management of COVID-19 will be downgraded from Class A to Class B.
The term "novel coronavirus pneumonia" will also be replaced with "novel coronavirus infection."
Travelers to China are still required to take a PCR test 48 hours before departure, and can only come to China if the results are negative.
However, there is no need to apply for a health code from Chinese embassies or consulates.
Other updates include:
International flight bans will be scrapped
Isolation measures will no longer be implemented
No more close contacts
No more high and low risk areas

A very happy holidays to you all.
