China immigration resumes at Northern Vietnam border gate

Thousands of Chinese citizens in Vietnam gathered at the border gate in Quang Ninh Province to cross into their home country. Over 1,000 crossed in the first two hours.

Chinese authorities required all who passed to produce negative RT-PCT Covid tests completed within 48 hours of immigrating.

In this first phase of re-opening, China is only allowing its own citizens to cross it’s border. Vietnamese and other nationals will have to wait.

Dongxing authorities have asked their Mong Cai counterparts to verify the Covid-19 test results of all entrants.

At other border gates such as Bac Luan 2, Floating Bridge, and Dongxing trade station, China has softened its Covid-19 measures and no longer identifies any areas as "red-zones" at high risk of Covid-19 outbreaks.

The country also no longer requires vehicles entering the country be disinfected on both sides of the borders.

Drivers also no longer need PCT-PCR test results.

Mong Cai Customs Authorities have ordered immigration staff to prepare for between 5,000 and 15,000 people to start crossing the border each day.
