Coronavirus update

Date: 04/05/2020

We hope all of our participants, families and their loved ones are safe and healthy at this difficult time.

We acknowledge that a few weeks have passed since this website page was updated, but we wanted to assure you that we have been working hard on your behalf to prepare for any eventuality for the upcoming summer departures.

As stated from the outset of the pandemic - we will not facilitate travel if it is deemed unsafe to do so - and this will be determined by government and public health authorities in both the U.K. and China. Your safety is our highest priority.

On 27th March 2020, China announced a temporary ban on all foreign nationals entering the country. Following the announcement all U.K. Chinese visa centres temporarily closed and still remain closed today.

As a result, over coming days and weeks we will be holding meetings with our partner camps and anticipate that those meetings will allow us to make a final decision on whether or not the 2020 summer season will go ahead. Following those meetings we will provide an update to all participants in regards to their next steps.

Thank you for your patience and support whilst we deal with this challenging situation.

Update on the Adventure China program:

On 16th March, 2020, we conducted a thorough review of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and the viability of the Adventure China program for 2020. At this point, we have decided to continue the Adventure China program.

Note that we are still monitoring the situation, and that this decision is still subject to change based on the following factors:

1. The Foreign Office travel advisory against all but essential travel has been lifted

2. After the Foreign Office travel advisory has been lifted, our global head office in the UK and our local office in China have reviewed the situation and are confident of the day-to day-safety and welfare of our travellers

3. Our partner camps in China assure us that they are confident of the day-to day-safety and welfare of our travellers

It is worth noting that at this point, the Foreign Office travel advisory to China has not been lifted. However, we are confident that as the situation improves, this will be the case. The Adventure China team will resume processing applications as of this update. All current applicants will receive an email from the Adventure China team with more details regarding the program. Applicants should work on completing their profile, and await further updates.

Important update about travel to China:

Following Foreign Office advice against all but essential travel to mainland China, any departures prior to June 1, 2020 have been temporarily suspended. Departures after June 1 will remain unaffected until we issue a further update. On March 16th, 2020, we will conduct a review on whether to suspend or continue the Adventure China summer program.

The Adventure China programme will go ahead when the following 3 conditions are met:

1. The Foreign Office travel advisory against all but essential travel has been lifted

2. After the Foreign Office travel advisory has been lifted, our global head office in the UK and our local office in China have reviewed the situation and are confident of the day-to day-safety and welfare of our travellers

3. Our partner camps in China assure us that they are confident of the day-to day-safety and welfare of our travellers

Important: as this situation develops, these frequently asked questions may contain information that is no longer valid. We will update this page as we receive more information about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation.
