The Chinese Embassy in the United States on May 17 announced the inspection policy for entry into China from the U.S.

Starting May 20, nucleic acid testing will be canceled seven days before boarding, changing to double nucleic acid detection within 48 hours.

The new rules say that the pre-entry testing policy for entering China from the United States revokes nucleic acid testing for seven days before boarding.

The test will be changed to “double nucleic acid” within 48 hours before travel, and no IgM antibody test is now required.

In “dual nucleic acid,” it is still necessary to cross-use different laboratories, and one of them must be done within 24 hours before boarding.

Nucleic acid test: sampling by “nasopharyngeal swab/nasopharyngeal swab” or “pharyngeal swab/pharyngeal swab” and detecting by RT-PCR.

All inbound passengers must apply for a health code, and required materials include “dual nucleic acid” test results.
