In view of the enhanced inspection and requirement by Chinese quarantine authorities against Zika virus, vessels that sail from ports in the affected countries to China are recommended to obtain a mosquito eradication certificate issued by authorities of the affected country if possible, so as to avoid any possible delay or trouble when calling China. In case no such certificate has been obtained, vessels are suggested to cooperate with local CIQ on their inspection or disinfection actions.
