Further to the club's previous web alert, members are advised that there has been a reported change in respect of the port entry requirements for vessels entering China from Zika affected countries. The club’s local correspondents in China (Huatai) have checked with Chinese Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau (CIQ) and confirmed that the previously issued 'Notice on Prevention and Control of the Zika Virus into China' has become void on 2 March 2017 and expected not to be renewed. Consequently, the previous requirement for vessels to produce a mosquito eradication certificate (MEC) prior to entry into Chinese ports, no longer exist. However, as this is a latest development, the club’s correspondent recommend vessels calling Chinese ports to check on the local requirements through their agents.
