|Notice on Adjusting Health Code Application requirements|
At present, the COVID-19 epidemic situation is still severe, and the risk of cross-infection from international travel remains high, therefore the Embassy of China in Vietnam once again recommends everyone to avoid all unnecessary and non-essential travel. In order to reduce cross-border transmission of COVID-19, starting from 26th February 2021, the Embassy will make adjustment to the requirements of applying for Health Code for those travelling from Vietnam to China:
1. The Embassy of China in Vietnam reaffirms that it does NOT issue Health Code for transit passengers. Travellers taking direct flight to China need to provide the following documents for application: both negative certificates of nucleic acid and IgM anti-body tests within 48 hours before boarding issued by medical institutions designated or recognized by the Embassy/Consulates of China in Vietnam; the air ticket itineraries; residence certificates in Vietnam (including visa, residence permit, work permit etc.)
2. Given the potential risk and uncertainty of COVID-19 epidemic in Vietnam, to minimise infection risks during travel, the travellers are kindly advised to take sufficient precautions to for their own health by observing close-loop management. They are strongly advised against any gathering, dinning, wining in public places.
3. Any traveller from Vietnam to China who has been vaccinated, be they Chinese or non-Chinese, are required to provide the COVID-19 vaccination certificates in addition to the currently required negative results of COVID-19 PCR and IgM anti-body tests when applying for the Health Code. A COVID-19 vaccination certificate must include the applicant's full name, gender, date of birth , name of COVID-19 vaccine, injection dates of the first and the second doses, the location of vaccination and name of issuing institution.
4. For those diagnosed with COVID-19 or any of the nucleic acid, IgM and IgG anti-body tests is positive, please immediately contact the Embassy/Consulates of China in Vietnam.
5. Passengers taking flights to China should strictly abide by the epidemic prevention and control regulations and submit relevant materials truthfully. The applicant shall be fully responsible for any failure of clearance or delay of flight boarding caused by false declaration. Any applicant who conceals health conditions and/or travel history intentionally, alters or forges test results will not be able to obtain the Heath Code and will be liable to legal hazards.
6. The transit areas of airports in Vietnam do NOT provide nucleic acid and IgM anti-body tests and the government of Vietnam currently implements strict visa and immigration policy, therefore the Embassy of China in Vietnam once again advises you to NOT transit via Vietnam to China.
