Dear, as there is no place to do the tests in Schiphol airport, passengers departuring from other countries are not allowed to transit in the Netherlands before arriving in China. However, if you plan to fly to AMS and then take another flight, you can the tests in the following clinics: Novamedik Dignostics,,, Ease Travel Clinic, MediMare, Corporate Travel Clinic Erasmus MC and Port Health Centre.

Reunion visa
I have a family reunion visa valid. Can I use it now to go to China besides the Covid test procedure?
How long do you take to issue the health code letter from embassy? Should be in the same day because in total the test will arrive in the same day it is done and it means only one day left before the flight. Thanks

Dear, may I know what type is your visa? If it is a Q1 or S1, you can use it to enter China.

As for how long it takes to issue the health code letter, please contact the Chinese embassy to ask about it.
