On August 10, the Chinese Embassy in Denmark announced that citizens of the following European countries may reenter China: Albania, Ireland, Estonia, Austria, Bulgaria, North Macedonia, Belgium, Iceland, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Poland, Denmark, Germany, France, Finland, Netherlands, Montenegro, Czech Republic, Croatia, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Romania, Malta, Norway, Portugal, Sweden, Switzerland, Serbia, Cyprus, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Greece, Hungary, Italy and the United Kingdom. 

Those who hold relevant Chinese residence permits (ie. work, personal affairs, family visit) may apply for a visa to China for free from any Chinese embassy or consulate in these countries. 

Last week, South Koreans were also given the green light to reenter China, along with increasing reports of teachers abroad from select schools who have been able to receive invitation letters.
