Shanghai Health Commission reported a total of 1 locally transmitted COVID-19 case and 8 local asymptomatic cases this morning, Saturday, October 29.

Of the 9 new cases reported, all 9 tested positive during central quarantine, while 0 tested positive during regular screening.

We'd say good news, but it doesn't seem to be making much difference in this situation dragging on...

Residence registration back online...

So this is good news.

Foreigners living in Shanghai can once again register their residence online instead of making the trek to a police station. 

You can register your residence by scanning the QR code below:


According to the law, foreigners must register their residence within 24 hours of arriving in the city / moving to a new address.

Those staying in a hotel do not need to register (the hotel does it for you).  

Those registering online will need to provide:

  • E-mail address

  • Phone number

  • Address in Shanghai

  • Photo of the information page of passport

  • Photo of them holding passport

  • Arrival and departure dates.

Once the form is submitted, the user should receive a confirmation via text within a few minutes. 

Should there be any issues, it may still be necessary to pay a visit to the police station to register.
