Notice on Tightened Management Over Overseas Arrivals in Beijing

To guard against the importation of the COVID-19 virus caused by its accelerated spread overseas, Beijing Municipal Government has taken the following measures to further tighten management over overseas arrivals in Beijing:

1. All international passenger flights bound for Beijing will be diverted to the following 12 designated first points of entry: Tianjin, Shijiazhuang, Taiyuan, Hohhot, Shanghai Pudong, Jinan, Qingdao, Nanjing, Shenyang, Dalian, Zhengzhou and Xi’an. The designated first points of entry for the specific flights operated by airlines can be found on the official website of Civil Aviation of China and the websites of airliner. Passengers on the international flights shall go through quarantine inspection and customs clearance formalities and claim baggage at the first points of entry. Passengers who passed quarantine inspection can fly to Beijing on the original flight. Customs clearance for belly-held cargo shall be conducted in Beijing.

2. All people arriving in Beijing from overseas should undergo 14-day medical observation at designated facilities at their own expense. After rigorous assessment and screening, people aged 70 and above, minors aged 14 and below, pregnant women and those with underlying conditions who are not suitable for medical observation at designated places may stay at home for observation. Home observation is no longer applicable for those who have separate places to live in and stay alone in Beijing.

3. Those who meet the criteria for home observation should apply for such observation to their residential communities prior to entering China. Those who fail to submit application in advance or whose applications have not been approved will be sent to designated places for observation. If confirmed by assessment as being eligible for home observation, they will be placed under home observation for 14 days, which include the days spent at designated places.

4. Those who take a flight with a final destination other than Beijing and arrive in Beijing after entering China should report their schedule in advance to their employers and residential communities. Upon arrival at their communities, they should voluntarily and truthfully provide relevant information and comply with control measures over overseas arrivals. One who conceals the history of overseas travel or residence will be held accountable in accordance with the law.
