China could reopen borders after February 2022 : govt advisor

When can international students travel to China? Thousands have been waiting since March 2020 to return to their respective universities in China. Their requests for a timeline of their return have largely been met with silence from the authorities.

According to Time, an adviser to Chinaโ€™s government said he hopes the country will gradually loosen its strict approach to containing COVID-19 after hosting the 2022 Winter Olympics. Chinaโ€™s State Council Henry Wang Huiyao was quoted saying that a closer collaboration between Washington, Beijing and the World Health Organisation could help reopen his country.

The worldโ€™s second-largest economy has a zero-COVID policy, and most foreigners are unable to travel to the country.

He called for more coordinated action on controlling the outbreak. โ€œThereโ€™s a lack of leadership on the global fighting of the pandemic,โ€ said Wang, president of the Centre for China and Globalisation, said in an interview from the Bloomberg New Economy Forum in Singapore. โ€œThereโ€™s a need for having that so we can facilitate travel, the movement of people, and even for Chinese government officials to visit other countries.โ€

The Centre for China and Globalisation president said he hopes the countryโ€™s strict approach to handling the pandemic will change and that it will gradually reopen.

When can students travel to China: A long wait

The South China Morning Post recently reported that two universities in China could allow international students to return to campus. Duke Kunshan University and New York University Shanghai have reportedly sent out emails saying students could be allowed back in time for next semester, said the report.

Currently, there has been no official announcement on when Chinaโ€™s borders will reopen to international students. China will be hosting the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics, which will take place between February 4 and 20, followed by the Winter Paralympics from March 4 to 13.
