Our participants’ wellbeing and safety is at the heart of all our events. We are therefore committed to ensure we give you the most appropriate support while travelling and attending our events. 

Guidance updated at 7 August 2020 – and subject to change at any time. Please continue to monitor your own national and international requirements.

At present, all overseas arrivals are subject to health checks (likely involving nucleic acid or swab tests), including during transit, followed by a centralised quarantine period of at least 14 days.

There is mandatory requirements to check temperatures and use health apps or scan QR codes to prove travel history are in place at transport hubs, hotels, commercial buildings including restaurants, residential compounds and other locations – such locations are also increasingly requiring use of ‘health kit code’ apps to demonstrate health condition and travel history.

We advise our participants to be aware of all requirements when arriving into Shanghai International Airport (or any other airport in China) and to be prepared for possible delays.
