Chinese New Year falls on 1 February 2022, with celebrations occurring between 31 January and 15 February 2022.

As a result of the increasing number of COVID-19 cases brought about by the Omicron variant, many countries around the world have implemented rules which include restricting mass-gathering events such as Chinese New Year celebrations.

The UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) currently advise that all direct flights from the UK to mainland China have been suspended, and a future review date has not yet been given.
