Reminders on Exit-Entry and Customs Clearance for Traffic Peak during National Day Holiday
According to the forecast of the National Immigration Administration (NIA), amid the national celebration of the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China, ports across the country will usher in a "small peak". During the National Day holiday in 2019, arrival and departure passengers are estimated to reach 1,980,000 on a daily basis, up by 2.7 percent year on year.
The arrival and departure passenger traffic will see a notable increase at major airport ports such as Beijing Capital International Airport, Shanghai Pudong International Airport, Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport and Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport. The arrival and departure passenger traffic of the above four ports are estimated to reach a daily average of 79,000, 100,000, 55,000 and 21,000, representing a year-on-year growth of 6.5 percent, 1.2 percent, 17 percent and 27.5 percent respectively.
The arrival and departure passenger traffic at land ports adjacent to Macao SAR will see dramatic growth. It is estimated that the average daily exit-entry passengers at Gongbei Port will reach 467,000, up by 7 percent year on year. The arrival and departure passenger traffic at land ports adjacent to Hong Kong SAR will generally maintain stable. It is estimated that the average daily exit-entry passenger traffic at the ports of Luohu, Futian, Shenzhen Bay, Huanggang and West Kowloon Stations will respectively reach 245,000, 122,000, 119,000, 68,000 and 44,000.
NIA has instructed local frontier inspection authorities to strictly implement specified work requirements, which refer to publishing transportation information on traffic congestion and black spots, and reminding the public of traffic safety precautions in holidays. Frontier inspection authorities shall conduct scientific forecast and release their exit-entry passenger flow data in a timely manner, while arranging sufficient police force on duty, organizing services scientifically, and actively guiding the exit-entry passengers to travel safely and orderly.
NIA also reminds exit-entry passengers to carefully check their exit-entry documents and those of their companions before traveling, and pay close attention to the conditions of passenger traffic and customs clearance of the ports, and try to avoid traveling during peak hours. In case of difficulties in customs clearance, passengers can seek help from the police officers on duty at any time.
