Travel to China
Last updated on: 01 Oct 2018

It is mandatory to insert on each booking with destination China, at least  72 Hours before departure, the following passenger details:

  • Full Name (mind the maximum characters allowed on name element) 
  • Gender
  • Date of Birth
  • Number and Validity of Document of Identification (ex: Passport)

These details must be inserted as an SSR DOCS.

All bookings without the mandatory information will receive notifications 15 Days before the flight, 07 Days, 04 Days or 03 Days, until the minimum required information on SSR DOCS is inserted. The lack of this information may result in delays at the check in or boarding.
