Due to the 2020 epidemic, museums in Shanghai are restricting access to kids who can show a green "Shanghai QR Code".

As a traveller, how do I get a "Shanghai QR Code" for my 3y old kid who is a foreigner (non-Chinese)?

For reference,

  • I was able to get a Shanghai QR Code for myself from the application Alipay, but that app is restricted to people of age 4 and older with their own phone number and bank account number.
  • Alipay lets you generate a Shanghai QR Code for other family members, but only if they have a Chinese name and Chinese ID.

    If you're in Shanghai long enough to send your 3yo to a local school then this isn't a travel question within the scope defined in the help center. However, Expatriates might be a good place to ask.

  • @Arthur'sPass Oh, thanks for the link to Expatriates. I've edited the question to make it more in line with Travel scope.

    I think now it is a travel question. (We always accept questions about local museums, also if you live in the city, but this question is also for people who traveled to the city.)

    In practice: foreign kids have been accepted entry with parents QR codes.
