Starting from 0:00, February 18, 2021 Pacific Time, the Consulate General of the People's Republic of China in New York will only accept the Covid-19 nucleic acid and IgM serum antibody test reports issued by one of the attached listed laboratories, which are based on samples collected by relevant designated agencies. Reports issued by non-designated laboratories or based on samples collected by non-designated agencies will not be accepted by the Consulate.
The issuance of health code is contingent on multiple factors, and is not guaranteed even if test reports are provided by the listed laboratory. The Consulate once again strongly recommends travelers avoid all non-essential and non-urgent travels to China during the pandemic.
The Consulate will adjust or update the list of designated facilities depending on the testing quality. Please pay close attention to the latest updates from this Consulate.
