Due to changing regulations in Beijing and Shanghai, many returning travelers from Hainan are in search of testing sites in order to avoid complications, such as quarantine or flight cancellation. 

Recent accounts of travelers being refused service without a COVID-19 test have motivated many to get a test just in case.

These are six things you need to know about getting a test in Sanya:

1. You Might Not Be Able To Link Your Results to Your Digital Fingerprint in Sanya
As of press time, many have reported that test results cannot be linked to expat’s WeChat or Alipay as hospital and health apps related to the tests are not able to accept foreign passport ID numbers. Sad to say you’ll need to go get the results at the hospital.

2. You Might Need to Register and Get A Hospital Card
Some hospitals (like the Maternity Hospital) will require you to register at the hospital front desk and get a hospital card. After getting a hospital card, you’ll head to the outdoor fever clinic. Don’t lose the hospital card as you’ll need it to pick up the test.

3. Get Your Results Stamped

Once you get your paper results, make sure to find out where to get the results stamped. At the Maternity Hospital, get the test results stamped at the registration desks.

4. Don’t Lose Receipts

Sanya People’s Hospital does not use a card system so make sure to keep paper receipts when paying for the test, both to get the test and to pick it up.

5. No Appointment Necessary

You don’t need an appointment to get the test but many testing sites have specific days and hours of operation. For example, Sanya People’s Hospital is open every day from 8am-6pm, but some tourists have reported being told private hospital clinics are closed on the weekends.

6. Collection Times are Hospital Specific

Some hospitals simply state to collect the test 24 hours after the test is administered, while some hospitals have collection times and windows depending upon when the test was taken.
