Crewmembers Must Register Hotel Guest when on Beijing Layover

Date: May 9, 2017
Type: AFA Article

In Beijing in the coming weeks there will be a number of large government functions that will take place at various hotels in the city.  In anticipation of these events, some of which will be very high profile in nature, it is anticipated that the local police authorities will be increasing security in and around our layover hotels.  During these events, hotel security will be particularly tight and all guests will be required to follow strict hotel protocols and procedures for registering guests at all the rooms in the hotel. 

If you will be entertaining friends or family while in Beijing, before inviting any guest to your hotel room, you must first register the guest with the front desk.  Failure to follow these protocols may subject the registered guest of the hotel to a fine or other legal action.  In certain instances, you could be detained for further investigation and possible fines.  The hotel will take no responsibility for any unauthorized (non-registered) guests and police will be operating autonomously during these events.  For this reason, please ensure you have registered any and all guests who may be visiting you during your stay at the hotel.

For additional information, please contact your Local Council Office.
