Ghanaians travelling to China are required to present their negative result of COVID-19 Nucleic Acid Test before they board their flight.
The specific arrangements, according to a statement from Ghana’s Foreign Ministry, are as follows:
1. Chinese and foreign passengers on China-bound flights shall complete the nucleic acid test within five days before boarding. Tests should be carried out in facilities designated or recognised by Chinese Embassies or Consulates.
2. Chinese passengers are required to take photos of and upload the negative results of the COVID-19 nucleic acid tests using the international version of the health QR code mini program on WeChat.
3. Foreign passengers should apply with Chinese Embassies or Consulates for health declaration letter with negative test results of COVID-19.
4. Relevant airlines are responsible for checking passengers’ health QR codes and health declaration letters before boarding. The passengers will be denied boarding if they fail to meet relevant requirements. All airlines shall strictly follow the procedures.
5. Passengers who provide fake documents and information shall be prosecuted.
6. Chinese Embassies will carefully evaluate the nucleic acid testing capacities of the countries of their residence and issue-specific implementation measures as appropriate.
These take effect with the reopening of the Kotoka International Airport (KIA).
