Many AmCham Shanghai members plan to return home or travel abroad this summer. However, it is important to understand COVID-related travel issues before departing China. Will you be quarantined when returning to China even if vaccinated? What COVID tests are required for international travel? What visas currently allow entry to the US or China?


AmCham Shanghai is pleased to host a seminar on US-China travel policies on Tuesday May 25 from 9 am to 11 am. KPMG Partner Michelle Zhou will first present on current Chinese and US travel policies. Next, an industry panel including Wong Hong, President – Greater China and Singapore for Delta Air Lines, Dr. David Krason, Senior Physician of Hospital Medicine at Jiahui, and Naked Group CEO Manoj Mehta, will offer their perspectives and advice on summer travel. Finally, the last hour will be a presentation by VisaCare CEO Mindy Hu focused on visa and quarantine policies for inbound travelers to China.


The session will include a coffee and pastry break.
