im leaving to China in 4 days, i have a couple of questions?

Ok hi there, first of all i'm from a small island called Aruba.

Where are going to china via the USA.

We'll first go to Hong Kong

and then go to China on the First.

Will they put us in quarantine cause we passed through the US (because of swine flu)

do they accept credit cards or travel checks in China shopping malls?

What are things that we need to do, to go through the chinese border without problems?

do you know about anything about swine flu in china? (of the chances of being taken away? or anything)? we are worried. never been so far of home

    So u all from Aruba and your Hispanic? They will not quarantined u all just because your pass thru US, only when ur have flu like symptoms like fever, cough, sneezing etc. They may only send u for check up in a hospital if they think u need to and quarantined ur if ur have 1 or more of the symptoms occurring.

    As for credit card, not many places in China accept credit cards of foreign origins, which includes cards from Aruba. They mostly accept Union Pay card and only upscale shops like branded stores then accept credit cards, as well as high end restaurants and cafes.

    Traveler's check are not that widely accepted in China and only accepted in major department stores only.

    U need to have a Chinese visa that is valid when u arrive at the border and fill up the form that u all can get at before u line up for custom check. Ur should have Chinese visa ready by then as citizen of Aruba may not get to purchase the visa at the border custom for a fee at all.

    Its under control but still a major problem. Since Aruba is quite safer than China, ur should actually exercise some caution but don't need to worry much. The only thing u need to worry is the communication problem. Anyway, have a great trip for ur all and don't be worry to much.

    Will they put us in quarantine cause we passed through the US (because of swine flu.

    No, they will only quarantine you if you show symptoms of swine flu or if someone on your plane does. They will check you via intra red camera or a team that will board your plane.

    do they accept credit cards or travel checks in China shopping malls?

    They will accept credit cards from world wide companies in most shopping malls. Travel checks they will not, only the Bank of China will accept these and they don't over the weekends.

    What are things that we need to do, to go through the Chinese border without problems?

    Be polite, have the correct visas and just wait.

    do you know about anything about swine flu in china? (of the chances of being taken away? or anything)? we are worried. never been so far of home.

    The changes of you having it are slim, if you are taken away you will be quarantine in a 5 star hotel.

    i remember hearing that they were being racist and just getting all the hispanics together and for the most part i don't think they would have let you come into their country only to grab you and stick into quarantine, as for the swine flu situation there they had something like it which caused lots of problems and deaths so right now their in a kind of painic over it
