  The "Communication Travel Card" was launched on March 6, 2020. It was jointly launched by the China Academy of Information and Communications Technology, China Telecom, China Mobile, and China Unicom to provide free inquiry services for mobile phone users across the country.

The user opens the WeChat applet "Communication Travel Card", fills in the mobile phone number and the verification code, and then can obtain the itinerary certificate of the place where he stayed for more than 4 hours in the past 14 days; according to the status of the stay, he will get a green or red pass card.

  On June 29, 2022, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of China announced that the "asterisk" mark on communication itinerary cards will be canceled from that day onwards.

An asterisk "*" in the itinerary card indicates that the user's itinerary in the past 14 days included cities containing medium- and high-risk areas, and it does not mean that the user has actually visited these medium- and high-risk areas.

The China Academy of Information and Communications Technology also clarified that the asterisk "*" has nothing to do with the user's personal health status, and is only used as a reminder to include cities in medium- and high-risk areas.
