Sending courier deliveries to China at Chinese New Year with ICR Worldwide.

Chinese New Year is a celebration that is celebrated by over a billion people and, this year, falls slightly earlier than usual on Saturday 25th January 2020. This year is the year of the Rat; clever, quick thinkers, successful, but content with living a quiet and peaceful life.

The Chinese New Year can run for over three weeks, from the preparations at least one week before, until the Lantern Festival on Saturday 8th February.

Chinese New Year celebrations are also held in:

  • Mainland China
  • Hong Kong
  • Macau
  • Taiwan
  • Singapore

When shipping goods to these destinations, during the Chinese New Year period of celebration, it is important to factor in as much additional time as possible, and prepare for delivery delays.

Many businesses in China close over the New Year, some businesses will also close during the week before the New Year, to allow employees time to get home to prepare for the celebrations.

The earlier you send your shipment with ICR, the less likely your parcel is to get held up. Please check that you have accurate and clearly labelled Customs documentation accompanying your shipment. Clearly label your shipments with the correct address. ICR customer services are available to assist with any questions regarding Customs paperwork. Xīnnián kuàilè!
