We’ll keep this China travel advisory page up-to-date so you can stay informed about how COVID-19 is affecting travel in and around China.
If you have any questions about travel within China or future international travel to China, please do get in touch.
We’ve spent the last few months reviewing our safety protocols, and in light of this pandemic, we’ve instituted a number of new procedures to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all members of a WildChina journey.
In our 20 years of working in travel, we’ve witnessed and experienced epidemics and other disasters impact different parts of the globe. We understand that throughout this outbreak, there is much uncertainty over what will happen next. We can say this: pandemics eventually will pass. We know from our experience navigating through other outbreaks, such as SARS and MERS, that we will get through this. Whether it’s in five months or twelve, we look forward to welcoming you to the Middle Kingdom. In the meantime, we hope our China travel advisory helps you to feel well informed on the latest developments and expert opinions.
However, travelers must prepare to show a separate green Health Code based on the province they are traveling to – this means your Beijing code won’t get you into Shanghai.
To help you see a new side of China, we’ve put together a list of restrictions and regulations by province. As with most things COVID-19 related, these situations are constantly changing, so for the most up-to-date information, please contact us and we’ll help you to plan for your arrival in your destination of choice.
Regulations and screening are especially tough for foreigners at the moment as well, even if you’ve been in China the whole time. You just need to make sure – at a minimum – that you have your health code ready, a valid ID, and a mask and hand sanitizer to hand. We do recommend that you take a COVID-19 test as well before you leave, as regulations could change at any time. Get in touch with us for up-to-date information or read our blog on traveling in China with a Green Health Code.
Please note: Currently, to board a train or plane, check into a hotel, or enter most cultural, scenic, or other public sites in China, you might be asked to present a valid ID, green health code, and wear a mask. Most attractions also have a daily limit and require the pre-booking of tickets in advance. Please email us for more information.
Important note for Chinese ID holders: We are getting reports that more and more destinations are using towns and cities listed on ID’s to determine if you have been to middle or high-risk areas. Even if you don’t currently live there, please bear this in mind when planning if you need to take a COVID-19 test prior to travel.
As travel restrictions are continually changing due to COVID-19, it’s important to make sure you have the most up-to-date information on Travel Requirements in China. Luckily, there’s now an app for that.
