Health and Safety

China Quest places the highest priority on the health and safety of all students. Because socioeconomic, political, environmental, and other conditions can change instantly, China Quest's safety and health policies are specifically tailored to location and current circumstances.

Students are issued international callings cards on arrival to notify families of their arrival. After students are checked-in to the hotel, we'll send out an email to the parents/guardians to inform the student's room telephone number. At every destination, parents/guardians will receive contact information regarding the student. Students also have Internet access in and around the campus and Internet cafes are readily available in other cities.

Students must obtain full medical insurance prior to the start of the program. Medical insurance must be purchased for the entire program. If the student already has a medical insurance policy in place, please make sure the coverage is applicable in China. We can recommend an insurance provider for the student but the terms and costs of the insurance should be addressed directly to the insurance company.

Students traveling to China do not need to have immunizations prior to departure. Some students have hepatitis A and tetanus shots as a precaution. However, if you plan to travel to other countries during the summer, you should check the requirements and precautions for those countries to determine if additional immunizations are needed.

There will be medical doctors and staff on campus 24 hours a day to take care of any student who is not feeling well or is in need of medical care. Parents/guardians will be notified immediately.
