We have been made aware that foreigners arriving to Changsha have had to go into 'self-quarantine' in their own homes for up to 14 days. You should make your status known to your local community guards or staff and/or your employer/institution. However, in recent days those arriving via other mainland Chinese cities (such as Beijing, Shanghai and so on), will have to remain at a designated quarantine venue (such as a make-shift hotel) in which the usual quarantine conditions will apply. This will again last up to 14 days. Passengers will have to pay for their daily quarantine so please prepare, at least, several thousand RMB and have a working bank card to hand as well as make sure you have your own toiletries, some change of clothes and masks.


  • There have been a flurry of reports and incidents involving foreigners across China in which they have been denied access into malls, supermarkets, shops and so on. These actions are not ordered by the national Government and WNIC has raised this concerning matter with Changsha City Government.
    If you have experienced any hostility, supposed discrimination or denied access (where Chinese nationals are allowed access) please contact WNIC ([email protected]) as we are now flagging up these cases to our associates at Changsha City Gov.
