There is some possibility of a plan for skipping quarantine or reduced quarantine if you are fully vaccinated with an acceptable vaccine.  Of course, different countries have different acceptable vaccines.

Stay tuned.  I'm planning a trip to the US in July or August, so I'll be 100% finding out about return to China quarantines.

too many different realities for quarantine depending on the city but you're looking at 14+7+7 between Beijing & Shanghai:

14 Days in a hotel of full quarantine
7 Days of regular testing and reporting
another 7 days of regular testing and reporting.

2 friends of mine went through this exact process last month getting back to mainland. They couldn't fly to Beijing so went in through Shanghai, spent the 14+7 part in Shanghai and had a choice of 2 governement approved hotels. they then flew to Beijing and did the remaining 7 at home with twice a day reporting.

Hotel was around 1000 RMB/day but they quarantined as a family with 2 adults and 2 kids.  aoaoaoaoao

Has anybody come to China recently (or as will be the case with me should it happen, come back) and had to quarantine?
In discussions with an employer and it seemed as though they were saying that I'd have to quarantine in one city for 3 weeks, and then quarantine in the city of my employment (though not on campus) for another 3 weeks.

If anyone has information

1. How much does it cost?

2. Did I misunderstand the whole 6 week thing?

3. Where do we quarantine?

So yes. Just when I thought I'd escaped, they're pulling me back in, but honestly I left 3 years ago because the paperwork was ridiculous, and even without COVID I'm sure a way of making everything more difficult would have been stumbled upon.

All jabbed with Sinovac.  agagagagag  Second dose is supposed to be taken in 4-8 weeks.

Citizens get it free.  Still waiting on my paperwork, so I had to pay the pretty nurse 100 RBM to stab me. ahahahahah

No sign of side effects.  She injected it VERY slowly and I don't even have a trace of a bruise or sore spot.

The Bar (ON-TOPIC) / Re: How to Snail Mail a Letter from China to Tunisia?
« Last post by Escaped Lunatic on April 06, 2021, 03:52:47 PM »
Get a letter sized envelope from a stationary/office supply/school supply store and take it to the post office.

Two notes:

1.  Make it VERY clear which address is "To" and which is "From" or you could end up mailing the paper back to your apartment.  Have a Chinese friend assist you in putting To and From both in Chinese and English.

2.  You'll also want to have your friend write Tunisia in Chinese under the To address.  That gets it pointed to the right country and the address as supplied by your banker will be sufficient once the letter is shipped to Tunisia.

It's been awhile since I sent a "normal" letter, but I seem to recall it was only a few RMB (as opposed to quite a lot more for EMS).

Delivery times are typically unpredictable.  Throw in the current pandemic and they are more unpredictable.
