US Passengers Must Submit COVID-19 Tests Before Flying To China

US 01China will require passengers arriving on direct flights from the U.S. to provide negative Covid-19 nucleic-acid test results taken within 72 hours of the flight.
 

Passengers traveling from the U.S. to China, and those transiting in any country that the Chinese government has listed as requiring the screening, must have negative Covid-19 results from a test done within three days of boarding at the last layover destination, China’s embassy in America said in a statement on Friday. Both sets of rules will take effect Sept. 15.

US 02Passengers who transit in the U.S. before flying to China will be required to submit a health declaration to the airlines or hold a green health code, according to the statement.
 

In early June, China barred U.S. airlines from restarting service to the Asian nation, prompting the Trump administration to threaten a suspension of passenger flights to the U.S. by Chinese carriers. While Beijing eased its ban, allowing U.S. airlines to each operate one flight a week to China, the American Administration said China was continuing to violate its airlines’ rights and would only permit two flights a week in total from Chinese carriers.

US 03At the end of January, U.S. President Donald Trump signed an order that temporarily barred foreign nationals who had visited China unless they were immediate relatives of U.S. citizens or permanent residents, and said that flights from China would be restricted to just seven U.S. airports.
 

Coronavirus cases in the U.S. increased to 6.18 million on Friday, with the number of deaths rising to 187,200.
 

中国驻美使馆重要通知!

9月4日,中国驻美国大使馆网站消息,为确保国际旅行健康安全,降低疫情跨境传播风险,根据中国民航局、海关总署、外交部联合发布《关于来华航班乘客凭新冠病毒核酸检测阴性证明登机的公告》和有关部门的最新要求,经综合评估,驻美国使领馆决定于美东时间9月15日0时起在美国全面实施赴华乘客核酸检测措施。
 

据悉,3月19日起,作为北京的第一入境点,部分国际航线入境天津,其中包括美国航线。日前,中国国际航空公布9月1日至10月23日国际航班计划,其中,美国洛杉矶一条航线从天津入境。
 

自美国搭乘直飞航班赴华的中、外籍乘客,须于登机前3天内完成新冠病毒核酸检测,并凭核酸检测阴性证明申领带“HS”标识的绿色健康码(适用于中国公民)或健康状况声明书(适用于外国公民)登机。例如,您所搭乘直飞赴华航班的起飞日期是10月10日,则应提供出具日期为10月7日至10日的核酸检测阴性证明。
 

自美国出发搭乘商业航班经第三国或地区赴华的中、外籍乘客须凭核酸检测阴性证明申领带“HS”标识的绿色健康码、健康状况声明书的要求继续有效。详情请参阅驻美使馆官网8月7日通知。请注意:美东时间9月15日0时起,自美国经第三国或地区中转赴华的中、外籍乘客需提供最后一段赴华航班登机前3天内有效的核酸检测阴性证明。例如,您所搭乘最后一段赴华航班的起飞日期是10月10日,则应提供出具日期为10月7日至10日的核酸检测阴性证明。
 

自第三国出发,经美国直接中转乘机赴华的中、外籍乘客,须分别凭中国驻该第三国使领馆复核的在有效期内带“HS”标识的绿色健康码或外国人健康状况声明书登机。如在不符合登机条件的情况下来美中转,将面临极高的滞留风险,甚至被遣返回出发地。
 

自美东时间9月15日0时起,中国籍乘客凭14天健康码(带飞机标识)登机的做法不再适用从美国搭乘直飞航班赴华以及自美国出发经第三国或地区赴华的乘客。此前不要求从美国搭乘直飞航班赴华的外籍乘客办理健康状况声明书的安排亦不再适用。
