Currently, inbound travelers to China must undergo a 5-day quarantine at a designated quarantine hotel in their arrival city (not final destination) and further three days at home (if you are landing in your city of residence), or a 7-day quarantine at a designated quarantine hotel. Depending on your arrival time and test result issuing time, the total number of days you will be in quarantine may range from 8 to 10 days from your arrival date.
