You don’t need us to tell you that the rules for entering Beijing have been strict for a while – all part of the new (COVID) normal. 

If you are planning to (re-) enter the capital from elsewhere on the Chinese mainland anytime soon, take note of the rules below: 

Before Departure 

You must have the following: 

  • A negative nucleic acid test result issued within 48 hours

  • A normal Beijing Health Kit (北京健康宝)

After Arrival 

You must take one nucleic acid test within 24 hours of arrival and another test between 24-72 hours following arrival. 

Call it the ‘3 days 2 tests’ policy. 

Note that this is slightly different from what That’s has recently reported. 

Beijing’s Latest Numbers 

Today (October 13), Beijing added 12 new locally transmitted cases, with nine already under quarantine observation and three cases of community transmission. There were four cases in Dongcheng district, four in Chaoyang, three in Xicheng and one in Tongzhou. 

Yesterday (October 12), there were 18 new locally transmitted cases in the capital, 15 of which were already under quarantine observation and three of which were community transmission. There were seven cases in Chaoyang district, six in Fengtai, three in Changping and two in Dongcheng.
