Urgent Notice on Airline Boarding Requirements
2020/11/27

In accordance with the requirements of Chinese government, the Chinese Embassy in Germany would hereby announce the latest requirements as follows.

Starting from 1. December, 2020, all Chinese and foreign passengers who are to fly to China will be required to take nucleic acid and IgM anti-body tests and then apply at the Chinese Embassy or Consulates in Germany for a green QR-code with the “HS” mark (for chinese passengers) or a green QR-code with the “HDC” mark (for non-chinese passengers) before boarding the flight. (please upload your tests results here: https://hrhk.cs.mfa.gov.cn/H5/ )

I. The practice of allowing China-bound passengers to board the flight with only the original negativity certificates of the Frankfurt airport (Centogene, Medical Center and the testing agency in the Non-Schengen area) is terminated. Passengers flying to China who complete the tests at the Frankfurt airport must upload the negativity certificates via the Wechat mini program “Health Code International” or its web version and obtain the corresponding QR-codes (for chinese passengers QR-Code with the “HS” Mark and for Non-chinese passengers QR-Code with the HDC Mark). Passengers can be allowed on board with the original negativity certificates from both nucleic acid and IgM anti-body tests issued by the testing agency of the Frankfurt airport, as well as the corresponding QR-codes. To obtain the above-mentioned testing certificates, passengers need to complete the sampling and testing within 48 hours before boarding.

II. The relevant practice for the passengers who complete the tests in the other testing places remains unchanged. They shall upload certificates both of nucleic acid and IgM anti-body tests via the Wechat mini program “Health Code International” or its web version in advance, and obtain the QR-codes issued by the Chinese Embassy or Consulates in Germany. Passengers with valid QR-codes can be allowed on board.

III. The Chinese Embassy and Consulates in Germany suggest the passengers take direct flights to China as you can as possible. The passengers in Germany who have to choose to fly to China via connecting flights, must take nucleic acid and IgM anti-body tests in Germany within 48 hours before boarding and obtain the QR-codes from the Chinese Embassy or Consulates in Germany, and then take both tests a second time in their last transit country within 48 hours before boarding the plane to China. Passengers must once again apply from the Chinese Embassies or Consulates in the last transit country for green QR-codes with the "HS" mark or the “HDC” mark.

IV. In order to enhance the testing accuracy, venous blood test method is required for the Anti-SARS-CoV-2 IgM Antibody test. The test results with capillary blood obtained by finger stick will not be accepted. Please inform the testing institutions that the results should be marked with the type of the blood sample.

V. The passengers should take the orginal test results (digital or printing version) for furture reference.
