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:
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)
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.
