Once the group reaches 200 people, the qr codes won’t work. If that’s the case, please send a friend request to this wechat account(ID: shanghaisamaritan) and include the region you are flying from (i.e. “Thailand”) in your friend request message so that I know which group chat to pull you into. I might be busy so please be patient! 


If you haven’t made it back to China yet and would like to be connected with fellow citizens and travellers please contact the admin of the group.

If you don’t see one for your region/country please feel free to start one and let us know so we can add to the list.

The Good Samaritans behind the group chats

Janette and Nikki started this initiative, completely on voluntary basis, so that travellers to Shanghai can share insights, tips and support. It can be a nerve-wracking time for a lot of us. Please be kind and patient to others, especially the medical, airplane and airport staff as well as those who are helping us to return to our Shanghai homes. 

If you have non-coronavirus questions, you can check out questions people have asked in our Q&A forum or ask a question there.
