1. Provide free PCR tests for international travel and return to the UK - 5,952 signatures

Since December 2020 China has banned direct flights from the UK to the Chinese mainland, making it extremely difficult and expensive for Chinese citizens and residents to return home, and vice versa.

Some Chinese and UK citizens and residents, particularly students, are being left stranded in each other’s countries as the only available flight routes are so expensive and uncertain.

The situation is causing tremendous anxiety to many. Families have been separated, visas overstayed, jobs have been lost, and savings have been wiped out by the cost of extended stays abroad and expensive flights home. Not to mention the financial blow to the UK tourism industry and universities from losing Chinese students.
