The following are the latest requirements for the Health Code application for foreign passengers to China, which will start from 29th June 2022 (included) .

1.All passengers taking a flight from Nigeria to China can apply for the Health Code.

   Passengers departing from Nigeria are required to take TWO Covid-19 nucleic acid tests in two different Covid-19 testing institutions with two different reagents before boarding.

The second test should be taken within 24 hours before boarding, with a 24-hour interval after the first test.
