GACC Announcement No.16 of 2020(on Re-adopting the Health Declaration Form for Inbound and Outbound Travellers)

GACC Announcement No.16 of 2020

According to the National Health Commission of the People’s Republic of China, by 24:00 of January 24, 2020, 29 Chinese provinces (autonomous regions, municipalities under the Central Government) had reported a total of 1,287 confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus-related pneumonia and 41 deaths. Confirmed cases were also reported in China’s Hong Kong Special Administration Region, Macau Special Administration Region and Taiwan, and eight countries such as Thailand. The epidemic situation is becoming increasingly serious.

To better control the novel coronavirus-related pneumonia at points of entry and prevent its spreading across the border, in accordance with the Frontier Health and Quarantine Law of the People’s Republic of China, its implementation rules and other relevant laws and regulations, the General Administration of Customs of the People’s Republic of China (GACC) has decided to re-adopt the health declaration measures by requesting all inbound and outbound travellers to fill in the Health Declaration Form on Entry/Exit. All inbound and outbound travellers must declare their health conditions to quarantine officers of China Customs, and cooperate with temperature monitoring, medical examination and observation, as well as other public health measures.

This Announcement shall be implemented as of the date of promulgation.
