Transmission of the corona tests only online

China

Due to the latest regulation of the Chinese government, foreign passengers traveling from and over Germany by scheduled flight will have to apply for the required health declaration online from November 16, 2020 onward. Applicants are asked to register using their PC or smartphone at http://hrhk.cs.mfa.gov.cn/H5/ (keep username and password safe for later logging in) and fill out the form online with the information requested, health status and upload negative nucleic acid and IgM anti-body test results.

In order to enhance the testing accuracy, venous blood test method is required for the Anti-SARS-CoV-2 IgM Antibody test. The test results with capillary blood obtained by finger stick will not be accepted. Please inform the testing institutions that the results should be marked with the type of the blood sample.

The Chinese diplomatic missions in Germany will check and certify the documents. The certified health declaration (electronic version) is sent to the account registered by the applicant in the form of a QR code with an "HDC" mark (see examples). The green QR code must be presented on a smartphone or printed out on paper when boarding.

Please Note: From November 23, 2020, onward the health declaration previously requested by email and stamped will no longer be accepted in printed form.
