China has decided to temporarily suspend the entry of foreign nationals from India holding valid Chinese visas or residence permit into the country in view of the COVID-19 pandemic, Chinese Embassy said in a notification on November 5.

China is also holding back clearances for flights from India, and the proposed Vande Bharat Mission (VBM) flight on November 6 has been rescheduled.


"With Regard to the planned VBM flight on November 6 from Delhi-Wuhan-Delhi, the embassy has not received the required clearances from the Chinese authorities, who have indicated that more discussions are required in order to process these clearances. The proposed flight on November 6 is therefore being rescheduled," said the Embassy of India in China in a notification.
