Starting from next week, tighter epidemic preventative rules, including negative nucleic acid test results and health status checks will be required for all travelers departing from India to China. Check the details!
According to a notice issued by the China’s Embassy to India on Sunday, all foreign travelers who are to fly from India to China will be required to take a nucleic acid test for COVID-19 and apply for certified Health Declaration Form.
To ensure the health and safety of international travelers and reduce the risk of cross-border coronavirus transmission, all nucleic acid tests must be taken three days prior to departure.
Passengers should have their tests taken in any designated hospitals or laboratories authorized by the local government, and no other form apart from the nucleic acid test are acceptable, reads the notice.
Chinese nationals will need to acquire the green health code with “HS” label generated from the negative nucleic acid test results to board the flight, and foreign travelers are required to submit health status declarations provided by the Chinese embassy before boarding, according to the notice.
It also specifies that the local government currently does not allow transiting flights to China via India, and local airports do not have nucleic acid testing facilities.
For travelers departing from India and transiting in a third country to China, the green health codes with “HS” label or health status declarations are also needed as a double check, and if the documents fail to meet standards, travelers might be prevented from boarding transiting flights.
