|Notice on the Updated Requirements for the Health Code Applications|
At present, the COVID-19 pandemic situation is still serious. In accordance with the latest domestic requirements, Chinese Embassy in Slovenia made the following adjustments and supplementary explanations for the green Health Code with a "HS" logo for Chinese nationals (hereafter referred to as the "HS" Code), or the green Health Declaration with a "HDC" logo QR-code for foreign nationals (hereafter referred to as the " HDC "QR code) application standards. The updated requirements will come into effect on September 13, 2021.
1. Application Requirements for Vaccinated Persons
Only those who have received the complete series of injections of COVID-19 vaccination, after which a minimum of 14 days has elapsed, are deemed to be vaccinated. Persons who are to be vaccinated with two injections but have only received the first dose, are not deemed to be vaccinated.
Those who have been vaccinated should upload the relevant certificates of vaccination and the "Letter of Commitment on COVID-19 Vaccination" signed by the applicant or the legal guardian (see Attachement 1) together with other materials when applying for the "HS" Code or "HDC" QR-code.
2. Application Requirements for Persons with a History of Infection
1) Determining history of infection
Those who have been diagnosed with COVID-19, or those who were not diagnosed but have tested positive for any PCR nucleic acid tests, IgM antibody or IgG antibody tests(not as a consequence of vaccination), those who have been vaccinated and have tested positive for N protein IgM antibody test (except for those who have been vaccinated with inactivated vaccine) are all considered as having a history of infection.
2) If there is any uncertainty about the application for "HS/HDC" QR-code, contact our Embassy by email as part of preliminary application and provide this information:

Two negative PCR nucleic acid tests (with an interval of at least 24 hours between sampling) taken within 3 dayes before sending the email.The tests have to be taken at one of the institutions that are recognised by our Embassy. Both the lung diagnostic report and the PCR nucleic acid test should be dated later than the date on the person's confirmed diagnosis or previous positive test report.

4) After quarantine and health status monitoring, if no abnormalities occur, one can apply for "HS/HDC" QR-code by submitting both IgM and PCR negative test results.
