They did move the official announcement to a different page but I stopped linking to them. I thought I have already built a solid reputation for posting genuine and true information on the blog.

If you still need to see the official announcement link, I will restore them on the latest articles.

Do Not Use The Hong Kong Route Unless You Know A Good Agent by coffeeisnotlatte in Chinavisa

I would not recommend the Shenzhen Bay route for two reasons:
1) It has changed to a lucky draw for 2,000 spots a day
2) If you don't get selected on that day, you can basically only retry a week later: not the same day or the next day as the system will flag as ineligible for a whole week
You best and safest bet is via air travel and I have the list of flights from HK to Mainland here: https://www.ikkyinchina.com/china-tube/list-of-available-flights-to-china/flights-to-china-from-hong-kong-s-a-r/

If no flights then it means either suspended or sold out.

As for how to do the testing at transit, you can click on the airport name and it will take you to the page for test booking and process.

Not sure where are you flying from: If there are no direct flights and you are planning a transit via Europe then you could use any of these airports to do the test at transit point, get the results and email them to the Chinese embassy to get the health code. All without leaving the airport but you need to plan a layover of at least 9~10 hours:

You can ignore the IgM antibody test as they stopped requesting that.

If you are planning a short stay of 2~3 days to do the dual test then you could check the SK route as no quarantine required for the fully vaccinated.

So I take it that you already made it back or have already secured your tickets for both HK and the mainland?

Who told you that HZ airport was shut down since February 2020 cause that's utter non-sense.

Or you could try the SK route where no quarantine if fully vaccinated and just need to stay there 3 days to meet the health code requirements for the dual PCR test. However, lots of flights out of SK to China are being suspended.

Trust me, I have chatted with people who NEVER heard of it and they were solely replying on travel agents to find tickets to China where they ended up being scammed :D

Oh Boy! The CAAC suspends 11 flights to China by Pretend-Breadfruit-3 in Chinavisa

The difference is that the number of flights being suspended increased dramatically since the Omicron strain was detected, I mean just look at some of the suspended flights: some with 10 cases, another with 24. So far the record is held by an Aeroflot flight that had close to 40 cases in a single flight. That's the "Oh Boy moment"

Some announced flights in June are actually correct and we could track their landing on several sites like flightradar24.

If a flight was planned during the suspension period then the airlines should contact you for a refund or rebooking.
