China Travel advice - Added 23rd January 2020 - Updated 14th February 2020 - Current 10th March 2020

Some Governments are advising against all but essential travel to the mainland of China (not including Hong Kong and Macao). This is due to the ongoing novel coronavirus outbreak. If you are in this area and able to leave, you should do so.

The Chinese government continue to impose further restrictions on movements within China in response to the coronavirus outbreak. It may become harder over the coming weeks for those who wish to leave China to do so. If you feel that you may want to leave China soon, you should consider making plans to do so before any further restrictions may be imposed. 

Please follow the travel advice of your Government:
