Navigating arriving in a new international airport while jet lagged is rarely a highlight experience of any trip, especially with a foreign language added in to the mix.If this sounds like a daunting prospect for your upcoming China journey, we recommend booking WildChina’s VIP airport arrival service to ensure that your very first moments in China will be both pleasant and hassle-free.
What to expect:
Personalized greeting right off the plane: As soon as your plane touches down in China, and you cross the passenger bridge connecting the plane to the airport itself, an English-speaking airport VIP representative will be waiting to meet you, holding a customized sign with your name so you can’t miss them. (If you’d like a VIP representative proficient in a language other than English or Mandarin, please let us know and we will check availability on your behalf.)
Smooth customs process: As almost all international arrivals to China will need a visa, the customs process is done mostly manually, with a Chinese customs official checking all passports and visas for new arrivals. Your VIP arrival service representative will escort you from your arrival gate to customs and through the entire customs process, including the fingerprint collection and document check.
Fast-Track Access: VIP guests have access to a special fast-pass lane which bypasses the main queue. This means less waiting and more time to relax in your awaiting hotel room!
Baggage Claim Luggage Assistance: After immigration come the baggage claim carousels. Your airport VIP representative will guide to the correct carousel and take care of collecting your baggage as you indicate. They will then transport your baggage for you (no need to worry about lugging it yourself!) through the customs checks.
Seamless Transition: Your airport VIP representative will escort you and your luggage through the post-customs doors into the arrivals hall, where your WildChina guide will be waiting to meet you and your chauffeur will be on standby outside, ready to whisk you off to your hotel!
