Health Certificate in English

Sowad (6 posts) • 0

Anyone knows if any hospital issues Health Certificate in English ( Proof that I am not infected by Coronavirus ). Recently going outside of China, so thinking of obtaining a certificate in English. Because I think other country people may not understand certificate in Chinese

What difference does it make?? 10 minutes after you take this test, you can get infected. Has zero value.

Don't waste your money and time, every country will probably want to do their own test, and as ''Bucko'' said ,a test done hours before getting into a plane is already outdated...Just carry on with whatever procedures they ask you to follow, be safe.

Firstly - there is no such thing as the COVID "passport".

As for the health check passport - the Yunnan government issues a formal government health check passport-sized booklet as follows - but it is NOT a COVID passport, nor is there any COVID test result within.

The Yunnan International Travel Hygiene Healthcare Center responsible amongst other things, for the health checks of foreigners seeking long-term visas (work, family stay, student, etc) issues a bilingual "health check book" along with a full A4 page report.

Cost is about CNY 487. They do a standard physical - so there's no COVID specific test. Currently - you have to present the Yunnan Green Healthcheck certificate (online check - easy to do and complete with near instantaneous response) before you can enter the facility.

The tests currently only take a few hours to complete (because most foreigners blocked from entering china) and they can provide the booklet and test results within a week - usually faster.

You can find info about this facility right here on Gokm's listings section - but for ease of use - please follow this gokm link:

Just before the shutdown some countries (notably Thailand) would not issue a boarding pass without a health certificate issued within 48 hours declaring the carrier to be virus free.

As others have pointed out, it's a useless exercise, as is that mobile app where I still show my green screen from April 4th.
