As of 8 Jan 2023, anyone arriving in China from abroad will be permitted entry without undergoing quarantine, following the recent updates to the country’s COVID-19 policy.
Inbound passengers need only show a negative result from a molecular test carried out within 48 hours of departure and fill out customs health declaration forms, rather than applying for health codes at Chinese embassies or consulates abroad.
The molecular swab requirement upon arrival has also been lifted and international passengers will not be subject to any restrictions during their stay in China, provided that their health declarations are normal and they show no symptoms of the disease during the routine health check at the airport.
All control measures regarding the number of international flights and incoming passenger limits have also been lifted. Airlines will still continue their efforts to prevent infection and passengers will be required to wear masks on board.
With these conditions, China International Furniture Fair (CIFF) is preparing to welcome international visitors and partners in person.
Organisers of CIFF reported that they will offer all the necessary support to facilitate travel to and attendance at CIFF: from issuing invitation letters for business visa applications to assistance with finding the best hotel in Guangzhou, China and obtaining hospitality perks such as hotel and restaurant vouchers; from offering VIP services to ensure the smoothest and safest possible fair experience to organising B2B meetings with exhibitors both at the fair and at their factories.
CIFF Guangzhou will happen in two phases at Canton Fair Complex in Pazhou island: first from 18-21 Mar, and the second from 28-31 Mar.
