To help users of Beijing Municipal Administration & Communication Card (Yikatong), including Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan compatriots and foreign nationals, observe Beijing’s Covid protocols in a more convenient way, we will start the upgrade of Yikatong on Health Kit applet from June 3rd. The upgrade enables automatic verification of the passengers’ Covid-related health status on Health Kit when they use Yikatong to take public transport and improves travel efficiency as passengers no longer need to present the information manually.
To make your travel by public transport safer and easier, you can upgrade your Yikatong in the following steps:
a) Search and open “Health Kit” applet on WeChat or AliPay;
b) Click “Yikatong upgrade”;
c) Complete the upgrading procedure according to instructions.
Please also note that you can still use un-upgraded Yikatong to take public transport by showing the containment policy-required Health Kit information before boarding.
Note: Users who registered Jiankang Bao (健康宝) accounts with Residence Permits for Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan Residents can get Yikatong upgraded directly on the Yikatong APP (北京一卡通). For more information please visit the official website of Beijing Municipal Administration & Communication Card Co., Ltd. (www.bmac.com.cn).
