1. Those coming to Hainan are required to show a green national or Hainan health code as well as an itinerary record indicating no past visits to risky areas or areas with infections before exiting airports or ports in Hainan.

2. Those coming to Hainan who have visited medium or high risk areas and areas with infections within China during the past 14 days are required to report to their local community before coming to Hainan, or within 12 hours after arriving in Hainan.

3. For those coming to Hainan who have visited medium or high risk areas in China, a first NAT (nucleic acid test) will be administered upon arrival in Hainan. If the NAT result is negative, a 14-day quarantine followed by a second NAT is required. If the second NAT result is also negative, another 7-day self-isolation is required, then a third NAT. (NATs are free of charge.)

4. For those coming to Hainan who have visited areas with infections in China, a negative NAT taken within the past 48 hours must be provided before exiting airports or ports in Hainan. For those who can’t provide this, a first NAT will be administered upon arrival in Hainan, and a second NAT will be administered within 24 hours after arriving in Hainan. If both results are negative, a 14-day self-isolation is required (counting from the day of leaving the areas with infections). (NATs are free of charge.)

5. Schools, universities, and all work units should check the green health codes as well as the itinerary records of their students and employees.

6. All airports and ports are responsible to optimize the checking process and improve transportation efficiency.

7. Do not go to medium and high risk areas or areas with infections unless necessary. If necessary, the above regulations must be obeyed.

8. In case of symptoms such as fever or cough, please put on a mask and go to the nearest medical institution for treatment as soon as possible, and report your recent travel history to the medical staff.
