China is about to reopen its borders after a three-year easing of controls. It also means that the return of Chinese tourists will provide a boost to businesses that used to rely on them, especially in some neighboring countries.
However, it will take some time for Chinese tourists, who were the world’s largest source of tourism revenue before the epidemic, to fully return. First of all, the current wave of epidemics after China’s reopening has led to restrictions on Chinese travelers in several countries, including some of the most popular destinations such as Japan and South Korea, reported by the Internet. Beginning in early January next year, the United States will require travelers from China to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test. These measures may limit the initial number of Chinese tourist arrivals, but given that these countries have also chosen to live with the new crown virus after all, such measures may eventually be lifted, especially after the current wave of infections in China subsides.
