2020/11/01

In order to reduce crossborder transmission of Covid19, starting from 6th November, 2020, all Chinese and foreign passengers who are to fly from Oman to China will be required to take nucleic acid and IgM antibody tests and then apply for a green health code with the "HS" mark or a certified health declaration form 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 antibody tests within 48 hours before boarding. They must take the tests at a medical institution recognized by the Chinese Embassy in Oman and then apply at the Chinese Embassy in Oman for a green health code with the "HS" mark or a certified health declaration form with certificates of negative results of both tests.

Passengers going to China via connecting flights must take nucleic acid and IgM antibody tests in Oman 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 upload to the WeChat Health Code app photos of their negative nucleic acid and IgM antibody 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. Validity period of health code is calculated based on sampling date.

III. Foreign Passengers Applying for Certified Health Status Declaration Form

Foreign passengers must email the scanned copies of their negative nucleic acid and IgM antibody tests results along with their passport information page and the signed health declaration form to the Chinese embassy/consulates mailbox. The Chinese embassy/consulates will then examine and verify the above information and email the stamped certified health declaration form back to the passenger. Passengers are advised to print the form out and bring the form with them to the airport. They must present the form within its validity period to the airlines flying directly to China before boarding.Validity period of Certified Health Status Declaration Form is calculated based on sampling date.

IV. Reminder:

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 antibody 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 antibody 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.
