US Eases China Travel Advisory from Level-4 ‘Do Not Travel’ to Level-3 ‘Reconsider Travel’

WASHINGTON, SEPT 15 – Citing “improved conditions”, the US State Department on Monday eased a travel advisory for Americans considering travel to China or Hong Kong from “Do Not Travel” to “Reconsider Travel”- Level 3.

The new “Level 3” warning reflects the “arbitrary enforcement” of local laws, said the department, which had issued its highest “Do Not Travel” Level 4 warning in June.

China and the United States said in August they would each allow air carriers to double flights between the world’s two largest economies to eight per week.

On August 6, the US State Department and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention lifted its global advisory recommending US citizens avoid all international travel because of the coronavirus pandemic, and instead issued a raft of high-level warnings for individual countries.

The CDC also dropped its global advisory warning against all nonessential international travel due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Over the past month, the State Department has revised dozens of additional country-specific travel advisories, including easing ratings on Mongolia, El Salvador, Pakistan, Mexico, Kuwait, Ethiopia, and Saudi Arabia to Level 3.

The United States has barred most non-US citizens who have recently been in most of Europe, Brazil, and China from traveling to the United States.

On Monday, the US government ended a requirement that travelers from China, Europe, and Brazil return to the United States at 15 designated U.S. airports and also ended enhanced CDC screening of those passengers upon their return.
