Registration required to return to Shanghai...

Those traveling to or returning to Shanghai from other provinces are now required to report their recent travel history online before arrival.

Visitors and returnees are required to fill out an online form with detailed information, including where they have stayed, visited or passed by, along with their local addresses and contacts.

The online registration is mandatory for all, even those coming from regions without COVID-19 cases, as well as those simply taking a day trip outside Shanghai.

Travelers can enter the city after submitting the form – there is no need to wait for it to be approved.

However, those who cause the spread of COVID-19 because they refuse to fill out the form or conceal their true history will be held legally responsible, authorities have warned.

A new section can be found on the suishenban app on which to make the declaration.
