The first flights under China's new "no quarantine" rules for international travelers landed at airports in Guangzhou and Shenzhen in southern Guangdong Province early on Sunday morning, the national customs authority said.
Officials said 387 passengers were aboard two flights from Toronto and Singapore on the day the country ended its strict COVID-19 restrictions for travelers.
They said the flights arrived just after midnight, and all passengers had completed customs clearance procedures by 1:32 a.m.
China announced in December that it was lifting COVID-19 restrictions that mandated international arrivals to undergo nucleic acid tests and quarantine.
Inbound travelers only need to take a PCR test within 48 hours before departure, and they no longer need to apply for a health code from Chinese diplomatic and consular missions.
