They were denied boarding, they never made it onto the plane to be offloaded.

In this case a lab report with your passport number printed on it and a government letter certifying the lab is authorised to conduct the test.
By China I suppose you mean the HKSAR as well.

I filed a complaint with the Travel Industry Council regarding Asia Miles Travel Services Limited's refund practices (not compliant with the IATA Handbook). TIC decided I did not have sufficient contractual nexxus with AMTSL (they don't respond to anything in writing), so now I'm before the Travel Agent's Registry, recounting all of my phone calls with TIC and complaining Asia Miles Limited as acted as an unlicensed travel agent.
