Notice of Requirements for China-bound Passengers from Lesotho
2021/02/15
 

In order to contain cross-border transmission of COVID-19, passengers are advised not to travel unless it is necessary and urgent. Passengers who really need to travel to China from Lesotho are required as the following:

I. China-bound passengers from Lesotho can only transit once (via no more than one country). Passengers whose itineraries do not meet the above requirements will be denied green Health Codes with the "HS" mark or a Green Health Declaration Code with the "HDC" mark (both hereinafter referred as Health Codes), which are needed for boarding China-bound flights.

II. China-bound passengers from Lesotho must take nucleic acid and IgM anti-body tests both at Lesotho and the transit country, no matter they travel to the transit country by flights or cars (refer for details to the Notice of Requirements for China-bound Passengers to Obtain COVID-19 Negative Certificates of Both Nucleic Acid and Anti-body Blood Tests dated 1 February 2021 on the website of the Chinese Embassy in Lesotho). Without the Health Codes issued by the Chinese Embassy in Lesotho, the Chinese embassies/consulates in the transit countries will not issue Health Codes needed for boarding China-bound flights from the transit countries.

III. When applying for the Health Codes, China-bound passengers should upload photos of their COVID-19 negative certificates of both nucleic acid and IgM anti-body tests, passports, air tickets, itineraries, Lesotho residence permit and visa for  entering the transit country.

IV. China-bound passengers who are Chinese staff of Chinese enterprises or projects in Lesotho, are required to take 14 days of closed-loop isolation before boarding the flights from Lesotho, and submit certificates of such isolation issued by their employing enterprises.

 V. China-bound passengers who have a history of being infected, must submit the diagnosis by the local hospital with CT or X-ray reports of lungs included, and two negative certificates of nucleic acid tests conducted with an interval of no less than 24 hours. They are in addition required to take 14 days of closed-loop isolation and submit the negative certificates of nucleic acid and IgM anti-body tests conducted within 48 hours before boarding the flights from Lesotho. History of being infected can be determined by either the hospital diagnosis, or positive certificate of nucleic acid or IgM/IgG anti-body test. Positive certificate of IgM/IgG anti-body tests as a result of vaccination are not used to determine history of being infected.

VI. This notice will come into effect on 22 February 2021.
