China has announced lifting the strict Covid Ban from January 8 next year onwards. The local tourism industry has been receiving calls from China regarding tour groups. But the local tourism industry is still waiting for the relevant guidelines from the Ministry of Health.

As the Lunar New Year falls in January and China is facing the challenge of preventing the epidemic with the influx of people returning to their hometowns across the country, the local tourism industry is expecting the return of the situation before pre-covid will need to wait at least until the second half or the end of next year.

The local tourism industry is in constant contact with partners in China


Malaysian Chinese Tourism Association, Johor Branch Chairman Zheng Jianquan told Oriental Daily News that the local tourism industry has been in contact with their partners in China and recently received inquiries about travel packages to Malaysia.

He said that due to the epidemic’s impact, the travel packages would be adjusted, focusing more on small and medium-sized tours rather than large ones.

Southeast Asia has always been popular with China tourists, but the government should have some restrictions due to the current situation of the epidemic in China. Moreover, China has yet to announce specific measures after lifting the Covid ban. Tour operators will have to wait and see and be prepared for the time being.
