• In response to rapid spread of Omicron variant, COVID-19 RT-PCR test reports required for inbound passengers must be issued within two days which is based on specimen collection date

On December 27, the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) announced that starting 00:00 on January 4, 2022 (departure date), the 3-day period of a COVID-19 RT-PCR test report required for inbound passengers prior to boarding will be changed to "two days," which will be calculated based on the "specimen collection date" instead of the test report date; the newly revised two-day period will be based on the incoming flight's scheduled departure time at the place of departure, that is, counting two calendar days backwards from the incoming flight's scheduled departure time (excluding the flight date). Passengers are urged to ensure their COVID-19 RT-PCR test report meets the above-mentioned requirements before boarding.
