Passengers who take flights to China on March 28, 2022 (inclusive) and thereafter should follow the rules.

1. Detection and sampling time limit

  (1) Persons who have been fully vaccinated and the type of vaccination is inactivated vaccine

  For those going to China who have been vaccinated with the new crown inactivated vaccine, the original testing requirements include "nucleic acid PCR double testing within 48 hours before departure (sampling time)" (need to be carried out at two different testing institutions recognized by the embassy, ​​one of which must be carried out in the East Hospital)” was adjusted to “pre-departure nucleic acid PCR double detection (it needs to be conducted in two different testing institutions approved by the embassy, ​​one of which must be conducted at Shangdong Hospital), and the nucleic acid test at Shangdong Hospital must be conducted 24 days before the trip. Within hours (sampling time), the nucleic acid test of another institution must be within 48 hours before the trip (sampling time).”

  Note: Common new crown inactivated vaccines include Sinopharm (SinoPharm, 2 doses required); Sinovac (Sinovac, 2 doses required), and other inactivated vaccines are implemented by reference.

Vaccines should be administered as prescribed and must travel 14 days after completing all doses (excluding booster shots).

  (2) Persons who have not been fully vaccinated, cannot provide proof of vaccination, or are vaccinated with non-inactivated vaccines

  Such personnel still implement the requirements of "1+X nucleic acid PCR and serum IgM antibody double detection", but the time limit for testing and sampling in Shangdong Hospital must be within 24 hours before the trip, and the time limit for testing and sampling in another institution is within 48 hours before the trip.

  (3) Persons with a history of previous infection

  Such persons still need to obtain a certificate of no abnormality in lung imaging diagnosis and obtain two negative nucleic acid PCR certificates from the testing institution (with a sampling interval of more than 24 hours). After obtaining the above certificates, the parties should undergo 14-day isolation management and health status testing , "1+X nucleic acid PCR and serum IgM antibody double detection" should be carried out before boarding. The time limit for testing and sampling in Shangdong Hospital must be within 24 hours before the flight, and the time limit for testing and sampling in another institution is within 48 hours before the flight.

If both nucleic acid and IgM antibodies are negative this time, the test report will be uploaded together with the previous lung diagnosis certificate and the previous two negative nucleic acid test certificates when applying for the health code.

2. One pre-departure antigen test is added for all kinds of people going to China

  In view of the strong concealment and rapid spread of the Omicron virus strain, in order to further strengthen the pre-boarding health test, all kinds of people going to China must take an antigen test within 12 hours (sampling time) before the trip. at Shangdong Hospital.

  Considering that the antigen test is close to the boarding time, those who go to China do not need to upload the antigen test report when applying for the health code, and the test results are directly reported to the embassy by the testing agency.

Nucleic acid and antigen tests must be negative before the embassy can issue a health code.
