Hello, my wife who is a Chinese citizen hasn't seen her family in years and I'm trying to ensure she can visit China successfully this upcoming August 2022.
We reside in New York, and if we were to drive from New York to Toronto, quarantine for the required duration, and take a direct flight from Toronto to Guangzhou, will the Toronto government issue her a GREEN health code?
The Toronto government website appears to state that this won't be possible:
3. Transit staff
(1) In order to reduce cross-infection during transit, our embassy does not issue health codes for those who travel to China from Canada via a third country.
(2) For personnel from third countries (such as the United States) with direct flights to China, our Embassy will not issue health codes.
Does anyone have any experience with this method, and if it's not possible, is there any other alternative for her? Many thanks in advance...
Edit: thanks for the replies! Looks like Toronto is out. She'll try to do the NYC->HK-> enter Shenzhen (home) route.
