Xiamen Stone Fair, Xiamen, China 30 July - 2 August
The China Xiamen International Stone Fair, twice postponed this year due to Covid restrictions, has now been scheduled to take place in Xiamen from 30 July to 2 August.
The Xiamen event site lists 796 on-site exhibitors in its 20 halls. Only 30 are from outside China, mainly from Asian countries.
An additional 300 non-Chinese companies are participating in the year-round online Cloud Xiamen Stone Fair.
Covid restrictions on foreign visitors to the show remain in place. Holders of visas issued before January 2020 (such as long-term business visas) are still prohibited entry with that document. Anyone with a work-invitation letter from a company can apply for a new visa (the exhibition organisers are not issuing visa invitations).
Holders of a new visa still need to show two negative PCR test results in the two days before departure to China and will have to pass a Covid test on arrival in China to avoid being quarantined.
You must fly directly to China (Hong Kong has separate immigration policies and is not considered a Chinese point-of-entry).
