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)."
