New measures have been introduced at some airports in China to prevent the imported infection cases. Passengers’ passports will be marked red, yellow or green. Let’s see what these colors mean!
Due to the overseas situation of the pandemic, more precise and targeted measures have been taken to guard against import and export of cases of infection in China.

So far, there are 8 countries listed as hard-hit countries outside China, including Italy, Iran, South Korea, Japan, Spain, France, Germany and the United States.
New measures have been introduced at Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport, Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport and Putong Airport to prevent importation of the infection.
In addition to measuring the body temperatures of arriving passengers, the airports have introduced red, yellow and green categories to separate passengers and offer precise, targeted tests to prevent cross-infection.
Although airports in Guangzhou and Shanghai have taken similar measures, the meanings of each color are a bit different.
A passport marked red indicates the passenger has come from a nation or region hit hard by the novel coronavirus and the destination is a city in Guangdong province.
“These red passengers will have special places to retrieve their luggage and will be led by staff to the exits, where they will take special shuttle buses to designated isolation areas for two weeks of medical observation,” the airport’s statement said.

Passengers with yellow passports will transfer to other cities within 12 hours. This group will have special waiting rooms and will be guided by staff through transfer and check-in procedures.
A green passport means the passenger is not coming from an affected country or region and has not passed through one. These passengers can leave the airport by themselves through special channels after a body temperature check.

Passengers who have been to the most affected countries or regions will be separated into two categories:
For those who will transfer to other places or have no residence in Shanghai, their passports will be marked red and they will be driven to designated places for 14-day quarantine by customs authorities.
For those who have a residence in the city, their passports will be marked yellow. These people can leave the airport by special cars or registered private cars.
A green passport means the passenger is not coming from an affected country or region and fly to Shanghai directly. These passengers can leave the airport by themselves through special channels.
