Chinese Government Issues New Health Code for Foreigners
The Chinese Government Service Platform has just recently designed a "Health Code Traveler Version" of the Green Health Code. The "Health Code Traveler Version" is designed for inbound travelers without mainland ID cards (including compatriots from Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan as well as foreign nationals) for better epidemic prevention and control purposes. Inbound travelers may apply for the Health Code on a voluntary basis to enable convenient travel and may cancel the registration at any time.

1What identity certification can be used for registration?
Any of the following eight types of identity certificates can be used for registration:
ordinary passport, Entry-Exit Permit for traveling to and from Hong Kong and Macao (EEP), Entry-Exit Permit for Travelling to and from Taiwan, Mainland Travel Permit for Hong Kong and Macao Residents, Mainland Travel Permit for Taiwan Residents, Foreign Permanent Resident ID card, Residence Permit for Hong Kong and Macao Residents, and Residence Permit for Taiwan Residents.
2Can I register before I arrive in China?
Travelers are kindly advised to register for the Health Code after arriving in China. The health code status will not be available if travelers register before entering China and will be automatically updated only 12 hours after the arrival.
3What if I cannot receive the verification code?
For users whose mobile phones cannot receive verification codes during the registration process, an e-mail address can be used for receiving verification codes to complete the registration.
4What if I receive “no relevant health information has been found” notice after registration?
Please follow instructions and send the required materials ton email@example.com, and wait for the technical support team to do the verification.
5For how long is the health status shown on the Health Code valid? Can I use a screenshot instead?
The health status shown on the QR code will be automatically updated every 15 minutes. It will be valid only for 15 minutes, therefore screenshots cannot be used as an alternative to the Health Code itself.
6Is daily re-visit needed?
The Health Code represents a comprehensive evaluation of the user's health status base on available information. It does not require re-visit or “clock-in” every day. However, users are kindly advised to update personal information if symptoms such as fever appear.
7What if I have doubts about the health status shown?
In case of any doubts, users can send feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org for modification and correction with relevant supporting materials, which will be examined by the support team.
