As shown above, all passengers, including both foreigners and Chinese residents, are now required to be tested for the coronavirus when they arrive at exit-entry ports.
But don’t worry about money, the nucleic acid tests will be conducted at the state’s expense.
Speaking of expenses, Guangzhou has introduced “one exemption, two charges” policy applied to all inbound passengers.
“One exemption” means that the nucleic acid tests for arrivals are free. As shown above, they will be at the state’s expense.
“Two charges” means that those who are required to quarantine at designated places need to bear the accommodation fees and meal fees by themselves.
P.s. The accommodation fees and meal fees are varied, depending on where to stay for quarantine and what to eat.
As for passengers arriving in Guangdong from overseas, who have tested positive for the virus and are covered by China’s basic medical insurance, a certain proportion of their medical expenses will be covered by basic medical insurance, serious disease insurance and medical assistance fund, while the out-of-pocket amounts will be paid by financial subsidies.
For those who are not covered by China’s basic health insurance, in principle, should bear their own medical costs. As for those with commercial medical insurance, their medical expenses should be reimbursed by the insurance company in accordance with their contracts.
Those who are not covered by China’s basic medical insurance and have difficulty in paying for medical expenses, if eligible, are entitled to treatment according to laws and regulations.
