Notice on Nucleic Acid and IgM Anti-Body Tests for Transit Passengers to China
2021/02/02
 

To further enhance the nucleic acid and IgM anti-body tests for transit passengers to China, transit passengers from a third country to China via Singapore (including those who entered Singapore) must take nucleic acid and IgM anti-body tests respectively at the place of their original departure and 2 days before departure to Singapore, and apply for the health code or certified health declaration code at the Chinese Embassy or Consulate in the place of their departure. For passengers who failed to obtain the health code or certified health declaration code at the place of their original departure, they must take the nucleic acid and IgM anti-body tests twice at 2 different testing institutions in Singapore within 2 days before departure to China.   

Transit passengers from Singapore to China on and after 8 February shall comply with the above requirements.

To ensure the smooth verification and approval of health code or health declaration code, transit passengers to China via Singapore shall report their transit information truthfully while applying for the health code, and upload the screenshot of the health code or certified health declaration code issued by the Chinese Embassy or Consulate in the place of their departure, together with the nucleic acid and IgM anti-body negative result certificates. For passengers who failed to obtain the health code or certified health declaration code at the place of their original departure, please upload the nucleic acid and IgM anti-body certificates issued by 2 different testing institutions in Singapore within 2 days before departure to China (please note that one must be issued by Raffles Medical), so that the Chinese Embassy in Singapore can promptly verify and approve the health codes or health declaration codes accordingly.

For such short-term visa holders as Chinese tourists and those whose permits were cancelled, or Singapore FIN Number is not marked on the test certificate, when applying for the health code or health declaration code, please upload the ticket to Singapore, boarding pass, permit, letters from the Ministry of Manpower or the Ministry of Education at the same time (either one is applicable), so that the Chinese Embassy in Singapore can verify and approve the health codes or health declaration codes accordingly.

The above requirements are also applicable to transit from Singapore to China via a third country. Please follow the relevant notice released by the Chinese Embassy and Consulate in the transit place.

The Embassy kindly reminds that Singapore has not opened  direct transit to China without entering Singapore. Please take overall factors in consideration and double check with the airlines before departure to Singapore. For those who choose to transit to China after entering Singapore, please fully consider the high risk of infection and uncertain entry policy, follow the principle of "no travel for non-essential or non-urgent reasons", and give priority to direct flights to China. Meanwhile, it is an important epidemic prevention measure to apply for the health code or health declaration code before departure. Those who report false information or conceal travel and residence history and health status will bear relevant legal responsibilities incurred.
