Chinese embassy switches to online travel applications

All Chinese and foreign passengers flying from Uganda to China have been required to take nucleic acid and IgM anti-body tests

Starting November 22 this year, foreign passengers who are to fly from Uganda to China will apply for Health Declaration Certificate online.

This is a new move being taken by the Chinese government to avoid cross-border transmission of COVID-19.

In the past, foreign passengers would email the scanned copies of their negative nucleic acid and IgM anti-body tests result along with their passport information page and the signed Health Declaration Form to the designated email address of the concerned Chinese Embassy/Consulates to start the application procedure.

But this has changed and "The Chinese Embassy in Uganda will no longer accept the application for Health Declaration Form via email, beginning November 23," read a statement from the embassy.

The Embassy adds that"In order to reduce cross border transmission of COVID-19, started from 8 November 2020, all Chinese and foreign passengers flying from Uganda to China have been required to take nucleic acid and IgM anti-body tests and then apply for green Health Codes with the 'HS' mark (for Chinese passengers) or certified Health Declaration Forms (for Foreign passengers)."

The following are the specific procedures of the online application:

1. Visit the Health Declaration Certificate system (http://hrhk.cs.mfa.gov.cn/H5/, or scan the QR Code to access the log-in interface.
2. Register an account for yourself with your own email address.
3. Fill in relevant information item by item.
4. Upload your negative reports for nucleic acid test and IgM anti-body test, then submit for the verification of the Chinese Embassy in Uganda.
5. Upon successful verification by the Chinese Embassy in Uganda, passengers will then receive an electronic Health Declaration Certificate via the online system, which is a green QR code with a "HDC" mark.
6. Similar online application procedure is applicable when you are applying for the Health Declaration Form in the country of transit. However, it is strongly advised that you visit the website of the concerned Chinese Embassy/Consulates in that particular transit country or consult them directly.
