Information regarding COVID-19 testing in China

Normally if you have a green code for both departure and arrival cities that are from the low-risk area you do not need to take the COVID-19 test. But epidemics are unpredictable, it is recommended to take a COVID-19 test before traveling to prevent that your departure or arrival city change into a risk area. Those who have passed through a medium-risk area within 14 days need to bring a COVID-19 test report.


Apply the province health codes

Each of the provinces has its own health code, some provinces allow the traveler to apply after their arrival, other provinces require an application before the traveler’s departure. Since the policy is changing frequently, please kindly check with the hotel, the travel agency and the transportation company before you go. Below, we have collected the QR codes for you.
