  2. Pre-trip inspection

  (1) Persons with no history of infection and who have completed all doses of inactivated/non-inactivated vaccines

  Take "double nucleic acid detection within 48 hours + 12 hours".

Persons going to China must conduct nucleic acid testing in two different testing institutions designated by the embassy. The sampling time for secondary testing must be within 12 hours before the flight takes off (Class I or Class II testing institutions must be selected, see remarks for details).

  (2) Confirmed persons and persons who have not been vaccinated but are either positive for nucleic acid, IgM or IgG (including those who have been vaccinated after infection)

  1. After proper treatment and recovery, go to a medical institution for lung CT or X-ray diagnosis. The diagnosis result must indicate that there is no inflammation in the lungs or confirm recovery, otherwise it will be regarded as invalid.

  2. For "dual nucleic acid testing", two nucleic acid tests should be selected from a Type I testing institution and a Type II testing institution respectively, and the sampling interval should be at least 24 hours and no more than 72 hours.

  3. The materials will be sent to consult_juba@mfa.gov.cn for pre-examination within 3 days after obtaining the above three test results (indicate name + application for pre-examination). Rehabilitation applications will be responded to regularly.

  4. After 4 weeks of recovery (after 2 months of recovery from Egypt, including 21 days of pre-departure isolation), a trip to China can be arranged. 48 hours before flight departure Internal Double Nucleic Acid Detection".

  (3) Those who have no history of infection and who have not been vaccinated, and who have completed 2 doses of inactivated vaccine on the same day

  1. People who have not been vaccinated should take "IgM antibody + double nucleic acid test", that is, within 48 hours before the flight takes off, a serum-specific IgM antibody (using venous blood) test at a Class II testing institution, and a nucleic acid test at a Class I testing institution. For testing, a nucleic acid test shall be conducted by a Category II testing institution within 12 hours before the flight takes off.

  2. Those who have completed 2 doses of inactivated vaccine on the same day will be treated as those who have not been vaccinated, and the relevant overseas Chinese should complete the corresponding doses of vaccine re-vaccination before they can be regarded as vaccinated.

If you need to return to China in the near future in an emergency, you must undergo at least 14 days of isolation and health testing, and nucleic acid testing on the 1st, 4th, and 7th days during the period. ) or "IgM antibody + double nucleic acid detection" (not vaccinated) requires applying for a nucleic acid code.

  (5) Persons whose CT value of nucleic acid detection is between 35 and 40

  Refer to Article (4) for the management of close contacts.

  Remarks: ① Class I testing institutions include South Sudan National Health Laboratory, Med-Blue, Nojum, BioLab, and Crawford, and Class II testing institutions include Peace Hospital, Friendship Hospital, and Yilian Church.

  (1) Passport information page

  (2) Valid residence certificate (such as visa, work permit)
