National Immigration Administration Director Liu Haitao said they will only process applications from individuals with real and urgent needs to leave the country; that is, for study, work or business.

China will work with neighboring countries to carry out joint patrols, neutralize illegal crossings, smuggling and other criminal activities at border points.

Liu reported on a tightening in the supervision of each ship, passengers and cargo arriving at the country’s air and maritime terminals.

The Administration proceeded with these measures in order to minimize cross-border movements and entrance from abroad of Covid-19-infected people, while China faces a rebound with the dangerous Delta variant of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus.

The Government is on the alert due to the rapid spread of the virus in some twenty provinces, the daily rise in local cases and the concentration of infectious outbreaks in at least three cities.

Authorities ordered the relevant departments to use up all resources to contain the outbreak, as it is already considered the worst after the beginning of the pandemic in Wuhan.
