The Chinese government recently announced new entry measures for travelers with COVID-19 vaccinations.

Key Points:

  • Effective Feb. 1, travelers intending to enter China who have received the COVID-19 vaccination must upload the following documents to apply for a green health code or certified health declaration code: a vaccination certificate, including name, product name/manufacturer, date of vaccination, and issuing institution; and a negative nucleic acid and IgM anti-body test certificate. The health code or the certified health declaration code will be issued after the verification and consideration of the submitted documents.
  • Travelers who have received the COVID-19 vaccination outside China who are flying to China from a third country are required to apply for the health code or certified health declaration code in advance from the Chinese Embassy or Consulates from where they are departing. More COVID-19 vaccine information is available here.
