In accordance with the Joint Announcement made by the Civil Aviation Administration of China, the General Administration of Customs of China and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China on 20 July, passengers who are flying from Norway to China will be required from 12 September 2020 to take nucleic acid tests for COVID-19 in Norway and apply for valid green health codes with an "HS" mark or Health Declaration Forms before boarding. The following procedures are for your reference:

 

1. Nucleic acid tests for COVID-19 have to be taken in qualified local institutions in Norway 3 days before boarding(counted from the issuance date of the test certificate). The test certificates have to be in English and include passengers' names, DOB, passport number etc., as well as telephone number or e-mail address of the institutions or doctors for test result verification.

 

2. Chinese passengers are required to upload photos of their COVID-19 negative certificates to the Wechat mini program COVID-19 Prevention Health Code International Version within 24 hours after they get the certificates. Green health codes with an "HS" mark will be issued by the Embassy after approval (Click here for Q&As: https://hr.cs.mfa.gov.cn/help_two/help-two/hs.html).

 

3. Foreign passengers are required to send scanned copies of the photo page of their valid passports, COVID-19 negative certificates and the Health Declaration Forms (see attachment) with passengers' signatures to NORHSJC@163.com via e-mail. Passengers' names, passport number, flight number and itinerary have to be stated clearly in the e-mail as well. The Embassy will send the Health Declaration Forms with official seals after approval back to the passengers to print and take to the airport for checking by relevant airlines before boarding.

 

4. Passengers shall cooperate with airlines staff for inspection by presenting valid green health codes with an "HS" mark or the certified Health Declaration Forms within the validity period during check-in or before boarding.

 

5. China-bound Passengers transferring via countries (Click here for the list: https://hr.cs.mfa.gov.cn/help_two/help-two/gj.html) in which the Joint Announcement has been officially implemented will also have their health codes or Health Declaration Forms checked before boarding the connecting flights to China. The health codes or Health Declaration Forms have to be obtained before travel and remain within their validity period during transfer. Passengers failed to do so may be denied boarding and get stranded.

 

6. Passengers are advised to bring the Nucleic Acid Test Certificate (with negative result) to the airport in case of need for further inspection.

 

7. Please take note that a certified Health Declaration Form is not an alternative to a Chinese visa.
