Step 1: Access the Mini Program

Scan the QR code below 

Step 2: Sign Out

Click the tab above the QR code that shows your name, phone number and part of your passport number (that keeps you signed in) > Click “Log Out”.


Step 3: Declaration

Scroll down > click “Declaration entry for foreign nationals, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan residents”

> Select English language


Step 4: Login

Fill in your information > Start certification


Step 5: Authentication

Click the green button meaning “I have read and agree…”

> “Authentication Failed”

> Select ‘Entry-exit’ down

> “I agree that”


Step 6: Your updated Health Code should appear

(fingers crossed its green)

If that doesn’t work, you can try with Alipay..


If you have to re-enter your information, choose for address:

When you enter the application page, you will see a special note of your declaration, which states that the information provided by foreign nationals is voluntary and not mandatory; and the information provided is only used for the prevention and control of the COVID-19. Users can select the language in the upper right corner, and proceed to the next step by clicking Next.

Note: name and ID number must comply with one’s ID documents.

After being filled, the information proceeds to be reviewed. Within 24 hours the review will be processed. For the declaration that is not complete and fails the review, there will be a hint to redeclare.

Once the declaration is successfully processed, you can log on the Mini Program to see the Code, whose colour is classified according to health standards. Health information below the Code can be updated by the Code owner while the name and ID Number cannot be changed. Health information can be updated for only once within 24 hours as to avoid malicious manipulation.
