A government spokesman announced today that the number of medical testing institutions for taking a Covid-19 test in the province that are mutually recognized by the governments of Hong Kong and Guangdong will be increased starting from September 15.

The expanded list of testing institutions will be applicable to the current Return2hk Scheme as well as the Come2hk Scheme, which will be launched on September 15.

Members of the public can access the list of medical testing institutions in Guangdong province via the nucleic acid testing organisation enquiry function on the State Council Portal Mini Program, or via its official website (bmfw.www.gov.cn/hsjcjgcx/index.html) (Chinese only).

The testing institutions will upload the test results to the Yuekang Code system, and travellers who are planning to enter Hong Kong under the Return2hk Scheme or the Come2hk Scheme from September 15 onwards may use the results as valid proof of a negative test result.
