Notice on Updating the List of Nucleic Acid rt-PCR and IgM Serum Antibody Test Laboratory
2021/01/05 01:00

Starting from 0:00, January 7, 2021 Pacific Time, the Chinese embassy will only accept the nucleic acid rt-PCR and IgM serum antibody test reports from the laboratory on the list attached to this Notice. In case of any inconsistency between this Notice and the previous ones, this one shall prevail.

Based on the information from authoritative American medical institutions and scientists, the pandemic will continue to worsen in the United States in some time to come, and more mutated-virus infections may occur. The Chinese embassy once again strongly recommends travelers avoid all nonessential and non-urgent travels to China and cancel or postpone such visit plans.

The issuance of health code is contingent on multiple factors, and is not guaranteed even if test reports are provided by the listed laboratory.

Consulates will publish their lists separately.
