Notice on Double Tests Arrangement in Transit Area of Zurich Airport and Airline Boarding Requirements

December 18th, 2020

In cooperation with the the Chinese Embassy in Switzerland and the Chinese Consulate General in Zurich, the Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) will provide nucleic acid and IgM antibody tests at the Transit Area of the Zurich Airport. The tests are only available for transit passengers who take SWISS or Lufthansa flights to China via Zurich and have no less than 8 hours of transit time in Zurich. Those passengers shall consult SWISS in advance about arrangements of the tests and plan their itinerary carefully to avoid being stranded or repatriated. Our special reminders are as follows:

1. Transit passengers shall take nucleic acid and IgM antibody tests and obtain both negative reports within 48 hours before boarding in the country of origin. SWISS and the Zurich Airport will strictly inspect the original reports. Those without qualified reports will be unable to board the flight to Switzerland or be returned to the country of origin.

2. After obtaining both negative reports in the transit area of the Zurich Airport, foreign passengers need to upload the reports in time on the website https://hrhk.cs.mfa.gov.cn/H5/ and select the channel "Transitzone Airport Zurich Tests" to submit the application for the Health Declaration Code. Both negative reports in original and the HDC Code must be presented before boarding. Please be sure to fill in your personal information and test results truthfully, and those who conceal or misrepresent will bear corresponding legal responsibilities.

3. The procedure for foreign passengers departing directly from Switzerland to China remains unchanged. They shall test for nucleic acid and IgM antibody within 48 hours before boarding and upload both negative reports online, and present the HDC Code issued by the Chinese Embassy in Switzerland or the Consulate General in Zurich for boarding. Please do choose the regular channel to submit the application, otherwise the HDC Code will be cancelled before boarding.
