The Embassy will issue the Health Declaration Form with the seal of the Embassy after examination.

Please read the requirements carefully and follow them accordingly. Failures to obtain the green health code with the “HS” mark or a certified health declaration form with negative nucleic acid and IgM anti-body tests results means you do not qualify for boarding the flight to China and will have to change your itinerary.

If you must go to China via connecting flights, please check the transit country’s entry regulations and its nucleic acid and IgM anti-body tests requirements beforehand.
