A reader dropped a note to a Chinese publication that was referring to Hong Kong-based SCMP that indicates that China is likely to keep its borders closed for international arrivals until mid-2022.,,The country won’t reach herd-immunity through vaccinations before mid-2022 and likely won’t allow international arrivals without quarantine until then to prevent sparks in imported Covid-19 cases.
,Conclusion,There is a travel bubble in the works between China, Hong Kong, and Macau that may be announced in the next three months or so. These proposed bubbles have often burst before taking effect, like what happened between Hong Kong and Singapore.,,This means that neither Macao nor Hong Kong will reopen for international tourists before the Mainland does that is likely sometime in 2022.,
