To prevent cross-border transmission of COVID-19, starting from 7 November 2020, all Chinese and foreign passengers bound for China will be required to take nucleic acid and IgM anti-body tests and obtain corresponding negative test results (referred to herein as "double-negative test results"). With double-negative test results, Chinese passengers should apply for a green health code with a "HS" mark (referred to herein as HS QR code), and foreign passengers should apply for a certified health declaration form with a green health code "HDC" (referred to herein as HDC QR code) before boarding. The specific requirements are as follows:

I. Test Requirements

1. Passengers bound for China by direct flights must take nucleic acid and IgM anti-body tests at a registered testing institution in Denmark within 48 hours before boarding.

2. Passengers bound for China via connecting flights must take nucleic acid and IgM anti-body tests in Denmark within 48 hours before boarding, and then take both tests for the second time in their last transit country within 48 hours before boarding the plane to China.

II. Applying for HS QR code or HDC QR code

1. Chinese passengers must upload to the WeChat Health Code app the pictures of their double-negative test results, which will be examined and verified by the Chinese Embassy in Denmark, and then they will be issued a green HS QR code. Passengers must show the green code within its validity to the airlines.

2. Foreign passengers should go to https://hrhk.cs.mfa.gov.cn/H5/ to fill in online information, declare the health status and upload double-negative test results, which will be examined and verified by the Chinese Embassy in Denmark, and then they will be issued a green HDC QR code. When boarding, the green code, electronic or printed out, must be within its validity and be shown to the airlines.

3. Passengers who have taken nucleic acid and IgM anti-body tests at the Embassy-recognized testing institution and obtained standard-format double-negative test results reports IN PAPER within 48 hours before boarding, can board the plane without a HS QR code or HDC QR code (see Appendix for the name of Embassy-recognized testing institution and format of the test results report).
