COVID-19: Travel from New Zealand to China

The Chinese Government has introduced additional testing requirements, applicable from 13 November 2020. All foreign nationals who are flying from New Zealand to China are required to present an Electronic Health Declaration Form (HDF) prior to boarding. Foreign nationals can apply for an Electronic Health Declaration here.

Passengers are also required to complete two separate nucleic acid (PCR) tests. The first test is to be completed 2 days prior to departure, with the second test carried out the day before departure. These tests are to be completed and produce negative results within the 2 days prior to departure.

If you are a Chinese passport holder, you will need to obtain a QR Health Code with Green HS status. This can be accessed via the WeChat App’s mini Programme and must be uploaded in advance of travel to capture the health check requirements set out by the Chinese Government, along with your negative COVID-19 test results. All travellers must have their QR Code issued by the Chinese Embassy in NZ.

Should you no longer wish to travel as a result of these new testing requirements, please use our Manage Booking tool to explore your booking flexibility options. 

Unfortunately, we are unable to accept customers transiting through New Zealand to China as there are no testing facilities available in transit at New Zealand airports. This restriction also applies to any passengers whose travel to China is not direct, but via a third country.
