In order to reduce cross-border transmission of Covid-19, starting from November 4th  2020, all Chinese and foreign passengers who are to fly from Italy to China will be required to take nucleic acid and IgM anti-body tests and then apply for a green health code with the "HS"Mark or "HDC" Mark (for foreign passengers) before boarding the flight.  The specific requirements are as follows:

 

I. Test Requirements

 Passengers going to China via direct flights must take nucleic acid and IgM anti-body tests within 48 hours before boarding. They must take the tests at a public or private medical institution recognized by the Italian government and then apply at the Chinese embassy in Italy or Consulate General in Milan and Florence for a green health code with the "HS" mark or "HDC" Mark with certificates of negative results of both tests.  

 

Passengers going to China from Italy via connecting flights must take nucleic acid and IgM anti-body tests in Italy within 48 hours before boarding their flight to the transit country and then take both tests again in the transit country within 48 hours before boarding the plane to China. Passengers must apply at the Chinese embassies / consulates in BOTH Italy and the transit country for green health codes with the "HS" mark or "HDC" Mark with certificates of negative results of both tests.  

 

II. Chinese Passengers Applying for Green Health Code with the "HS" Mark

 

Chinese passengers must upload to the WeChat Health Code app photos of their negative nucleic acid and IgM anti-body tests results, which will then be examined and verified by the Chinese embassy / consulates. 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.  

 

III. Foreign Passengers Applying for Green Health Code with the  "HDC" Mark 

 

Foreign passengers can log on to the website https://hrhk.cs.mfa.gov.cn/H5/ through computers or mobile phones and other terminals, fill in information online, declare health status, upload negative nucleic acid and IgM anti-body tests certificates and other materials which will then be examined and verified by the Chinese embassy / consulates. Foreign passengers then will get the green health code with the "HDC" mark. Passengers must present the green code within its validity period to the airlines flying directly to China before boarding.

 

IV. Reminder:

 

Please read the requirements carefully and follow them accordingly. Failure to obtain the green health code with the "HS" mark or"HDC" Mark 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 could result in being stranded and heightened infection risks.
