2020/10/30

In order to reduce cross-border transmission of Covid 19, starting from 0:00am November 8th, 2020, all Chinese and foreign passengers who are to fly from Israel 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 a certified health declaration form before boarding the flights. The specific requirements as follows:
 

I. Test Requirements

1.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 medical institution recognized by the Chinese Embassy in Israel (http://il.china-embassy.org/eng/gztg/t1801731.htm) and then apply at the Chinese embassy for a green health code with the "HS" mark or a certified health declaration form with certificates of negative results of both tests.

2.Passengers going to China via connecting flights must take nucleic acid and IgM anti-body tests in Israel 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 countries for green health codes with the "HS" mark or certified health declaration forms with certificates of negative results of both tests.

 

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

Chinese passengers must make health declarations and upload photos of their COVID-19 negative nucleic acid and IgM anti-body tests results to the Wechat mini program COVID-19 Prevention Health Code International Version (see attachment 1) which will then be examined and verified by the Chinese Embassy in Israel. Then they will get the green health code with the "HS" mark(see attachment 2). Passengers must present the green code within its validity period to the airlines flying directly to China before boarding.

 

III. Foreign Passengers Applying for Certified Health Declaration Form

Foreign passengers taking flights to China departing from Israel are required to apply for a "Health Declare Certificate" online. Foreign passengers can log on to the website http://hrhk.cs.mfa.gov.cn/H5/ through computers or mobile phones, and fill in the information online, declare the health status, upload their negative nucleic acid and IgM anti-body tests results certificates and other materials. After the Chinese Embassy in Israel passes the review, the "Health Declare Certificate" (electronic version,see attachment 3) will be issued through this website. The "Health Declare Certificate" (electronic version) will be displayed in the form of a QR code with "HDC" logo. Upon boarding, foreign passengers must present the electronic version or the printed version for verification by the airlines company. 

 

IV. Reminder

1.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 will be refused to board the flight to China and will have to change your itinerary.

2.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.

3.Please pay close attention to the holiday arrangements in Israel. In consideration of potential holiday arrangements of relevant medical institutions, please make appointments for the nucleic acid test in advance.
