With the world starting to open up again it was only a matter of time before China started simplifying travel restrictions. Although China has now opened up a little, it remains one of the strictest countries to fly to. Have a read of the official regulations below and remember that Fast Test Centre have Chinese staff on hand to assist with your testing requirements!

According to the updated Chinese regulations (06/07/2022) passengers traveling from the UK to China will be issued with a Health Declaration Certificate green code after providing 2 PCR test reports from any UK registered clinics.

The rules state that passengers need to take two PCR tests for COVID-19 within 48 hours of their departure from the UK in two different clinics, the 2nd of which must be within 24 hours of their departure from the UK and with an interval of more than 24 hours from the 1st one.

Passengers whose test results are all negative should then visit the embassy health certificate portal https://hrhk.cs.mfa.gov.cn/H5/ to apply for the Health Declaration Certificate. Passengers need to submit 2 PCR test reports, a photocopy of passport bio data page and visa page, as well as an itinerary, to the Embassy or the related Consulate-General.

Passengers taking transit routes need to obtain an HDC green code in the UK and another HDC green code in the last stop before entering China. Please check the website of the Chinese Embassy in the last stop country for the detailed requirements.

Passengers are advised to submit their applications at least 3 hours before departure to avoid failure in acquiring the Health Declaration Certificate in time.

Here at Fast Test Centre we have you covered for the whole package (1 x 48 hour PCR test and another at least 24 hours after) simply book your test on our dedicated China pages found on the links below –
