Then they will get the green health code with the "HS" mark. Passengers must present the green code within its validity period to the airlines flying directly to China before boarding. Validity period of health code is calculated based on sampling date. It is recommended to bring the paper version of the negative nucleic acid and IgM anti-body Certificates for further reference.

Foreign passengers must email the scanned copies of their negative nucleic acid and IgM anti-body tests results along with their passport information page and the signed health declaration form to the Chinese Embassy mailbox: consulate_npl@163.com. The Chinese Embassy will then examine and verify the above information and email the stamped certified health declaration form back to the passenger. Please be noted that it shall take at least 1 working day for the verification by the Chinese Embassy.

Passengers are advised to print the form out and bring the form with them to the airport. They must present the form within its validity period to the airlines flying directly to China before boarding.Validity period of Certified Health Declaration Form is calculated based on sampling date. It is recommended to bring the paper version of the negative nucleic acid and IgM anti-body Certificates for further reference.

V.Reminder:

Please read the requirements carefully and follow them accordingly. Failure 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. Failure to enter the transit country or meet the requirements regarding the tests, the green code or certified health declaration form could result in being stranded and heightened infection risks.

It is requested that all foreign passengers inbound China from Nepal shall follow relevant laws and regulations and provide genuine and effective Test Certificates. Those who provide fake certificates shall take legal responsibility accordingly.
