All participants must apply for their Chinese visas in the Chinese embassies or consulates in their countries of residence. WMF is not responsible for the process and not liable for visas not being granted or being granted too late. We seriously recommend to begin with the application process early enough by enquiring for the details about entering PR of China.
From the local WC 2019 organizer the teams will receive the official invitation letter, which is needed for applying for the visas. For this letter you need to announce the names and birth dates of the visa applicants. These issues are to be handled directly with the local organizer.
The contact person for visa issues is:
Ms. Xiang Zhang

The closest international airports are Shanghai Pudong (60-90 min from Zhouzhuang by car depending on the traffic) and Shanghai Hongqiao (30-45 min from Zhouzhuang by car depending on the traffic). Most flights from Europe arrive at Pudong.
The organizer will provide collective bus transfers from airports to the hotel and back at certain times on certain days. The schedule will be defined later, when the arrival times of the teams are better known. These transfers are free of charge, but please note that customized transfers can’t be provided to single teams. For those who prefer to use taxi, the prices are ca. 50 EUR from Hongqiao and ca. 80 EUR from Pudong to Zhouzhuang. The organizer will also provide free shuttle service between hotel and minigolf centre on competition and official training days.
Transportation enquiries are to be addressed to Ms. Zhang (see above).
